Compression load cells

octogon is one of the leading distributors of high quality and precise weighing technology that is used in many areas of industry. Our extensive portfolio of compression load cells, based on strain gages, impresses with high accuracy, reliability, and a first-class price-performance ratio. High product availability allows fast delivery worldwide.

Compression force load cells are used to measure and where the installation space is very limited. These measuring cells are constructed in the shape of a bar, whereby the force is introduced centrally. Our compression force load cells are made of stainless steel, have protection class IP67 and a small deflection. There is a metallic spring body inside the compression force load cells that deforms under pressure. When the force decreases, the spring returns to its original position. A strain gage on the spring converts the deformation into electrical impulses. 

If you cannot find what you are looking for in the product portfolio below, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are continuously expanding our portfolio and we are sure that we can also find a solution for your metrological needs.
