F225 High Load Ultra Low Profile Loadcell

Geometry: Ultra low profile axial loadcell for use in force measurements in compression.

The ultra slim design provides for ease of installation beneath heavy machinery mounts, hydraulic rams or interposed within series mechanical compression assemblies.

In the event of structural failure of the loadcell the resulting vertical movement of the supported load including normal deflection will not exceed 2.5mm.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Please consult our engineering department.

Details of our other loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.

  1. AL = Applied load.
  2. RL = Rated load.
  3. Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.
  4. The load must be applied directly through the central loading axis.


The loadcell is fitted with 2 metres of PVC insulated 4 core screened cable type 7-2-4C.

Excitation + = Red, Excitation - = Blue, Signal + = Yellow, Signal - = Green, Screen = Orange.

The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.
