Strain Gauges

When you need to measure mechanical force, trust strain gauge load cells from Durham Instruments. With accurate and powerful performance, there is no end to the industry applications our products can provide. We have an unbeatable selection that includes many different types of load cells, allowing you to buy according to the type, capacity, construction and durability you desire. With a product for any preference, you will walk away satisfied when you shop with us.

Wide selection

Our selection of strain gauge-based load cells includes a range of low profile cells. The 1000 Series from Interface is fatigue rated and comes in stainless steel. These models are guaranteed to run for 100 million cycles, minimizing temperature influence and measuring up to 50,000 lbf. Other low profile cells include the 2400, which features similar stainless steel construction, compact design and a capacity of up to 5,000 lbf., and the 3200, which is accurate to within 0.04 per cent and has a 100,000 lbf. capacity.

We also carry beam type load cells that use strain gauges. Our four varieties include the MB, which measures up to 250 lbf. within a 0.03 per cent margin of accuracy for a cost-efficient instrument solution. This model also comes in two versions with over 10 times more overload protection.  The SSB sealed beam load cell detects up to 1,000 lbf., with 10 times the overload protection of the MB load cell.

OEM load cells include the FC22, an innovative option with unbeatable cost-efficiency, response time life expectancy and compression ranges. Its counterpart, the FC23 features a compression range that reaches 2,000 lbf. in a compact and noise-free package, while FS20 offers each of these features, but with a smaller force capacity (1500 g).

Finally, the SM represents just one of our many S-type load cells. This high performance option is accurate to within 0.03 per cent and has a capacity of up to 1,000 lbf. It comes in low-height and overload protected models as well.

Useful for many applications

Whether you need compression, accuracy or high capacity, our load cells work in a number of applications. Industries served include packaging, aerospace, medical and more.
