Low Profile Universal Load Cell - Ideal for Structural and Fatigue Testing Applications

LCM Systems has launched a new range of low-profile universal load cells for many testing applications including structural and materials testing.

Online PR News – 09-April-2010 – – LCM Systems is pleased to announce the launch of the new PTC-1 range of low profile, universal load cells. Ideal for many testing applications including structural and airframe testing, Jack Load monitoring and material and fatigue test machine feedback, this new series has been designed for use where high stability and low height are essential requirements.

The PTC-1 load cells are available with a rated load from 5 to 1000kN and offer high natural frequency, low deflection and excellent resistance to side and torsion forces thanks to the shear web internal construction. The stainless steel construction ensures corrosion protection both for the load cells themselves and the optional mounting base, which is necessary if the load cells are to be used in tension.

For use in a wide range of harsh and rugged environments, the PTC-1 load cells are supplied with both an integral MIL-SPEC connector and a mating connector. The cells are also sealed to IP66.

The cells can be supplied calibrated and the in-house technical department at LCM Systems can advise and provide a comprehensive range of load cell instrumentation for ‘ready to go’ systems.
