Four different models can be purchased. All have standard metric threads at each end that are designed to accept standard mating spherical rod-end bearings and can be supplied on their own or combined with LCM Systems' comprehensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system. Popular instrumentation supplied with the STA load cells include the SGA strain gauge amplifiers and the TR150.
The STA-1 series has rated loads from 50 to 300kg, is manufactured in aluminium alloy and is environmentally sealed to IP66. For measurements in harsh environments, the STA-3 series is the range of choice. With load ratings up to 1,000kg, it is constructed in nickel-plated alloy steel and manufactured to IP67. For engineers looking for higher load ratings, the STA-4 is the tension/compression load cell of choice ranging from 1500 - 5000kg and along with the STA-3 series makes it a very cost-effective solution for many process weighing applications.
For straightforward application advice, LCM Systems' experienced in-house design engineers are only a phone call or email away and they will talk you through the most appropriate load cell for your particular requirements.
