Aluminium S-Type Tension/Compression Loadcell - AST

(100kg~1t Anodised Aluminum) Lower cost general S-Type.

The AST is a superb cost effective, high accuracy S-type tension and compression load cell.

Constructed robustly of high strength aircraft aluminium, it’s a versatile load cell ideal for an array of applications. Used extensively for static weighing and in the agricultural industry, it has proven to have a rugged long life.

M8 threads - 100kg and 250kg capacities

M12 threads - 500kg and 1t capacities

The AST features an IP67 rating and is backed by a three-year warranty. Many of the metric accessories can be used with the AST model.
