Product Description


    FUTEK’s Column Load Cell (Miniature) offers an impressive compact design for high capacity applications. With a diameter of 1.25”, it is ideal for tight spaces. The LCA310 Column Load Cell (Miniature) is offered in 17-4PH Stainless Steel in 15,000 lbs to 30,000 lbs, with a raised surface radius to lower the possibility of off center loading.

    The Column Load Cell (Miniature) is designed to measure loads in compression. This model is manufactured in US, and similar to our entire Load Cell product line, uses metal foil strain gauge technology. Additional design features include the use of a strain relief providing much greater protection from the pull on the cable.


    Product Highlights:

    • Low Deflection
    • Small profile for tight spaces
    • Compression
    • High Capacity Miniature Load Column/Canister Load Cell


    For those who are a looking for a complete system solution, FUTEK can provide both signal conditioned displays or our VCal Portable System. FUTEK’s VCal Portable System brings an easy-to-use system verification directly to the customer making it ideal for on-site verification and calibration of your products.
