OBUG Single Point Platform Load Cell

Quick Overview

The OBUG series of load cells are single point load cells designed for applications where the point of application of the load or force may vary. Single point load cells are primarily designed for the platform type weighing scales where applications are diverse, ranging from weighing a single diamond to loads of up to 40Kg. Other applications include low range tensile test machines, robotics and web tension measurement. OBUG load cells are available with a range of 0-250 grams up to 0-40Kg, OBUC & OBUH load cells cover ranges up to 750Kg. The load cells provide a 1.5-2mV/V output but can be supplied with suitable inline amplifiers to provide a calibrated 4-20mA output. ATEX versions are available.
