Compression and Tension Load Cells
TE Connectivity (TE) offers packaged load cell assemblies for test and measurement applications that require high performance or unique packaging. Our broad range of packaged load cells feature MEMS silicon strain gages enabling OEM's to measure force with low cost and high reliability. The gages produce a high level of output signal for a low operating stain using inorganic materials to offer long term stability. Load cells are gaged in a variety of materials from high strength stainless steel to special alloys.
Capabilities of TE's Load Cell Portfolio
- Standard and custom designs for various test and measurement applications
- Automotive test, miniature, and multi-axial force cell types along with supporting electronics
