LD3™ Compression Load Cell

General Purpose Load Cell

The robust and versatile LD3 weight sensor is installed under a load bearing support. This load cell compensates for changes in output due to the natural movement of a vessel.

  • Mechanically secure by being bolted together rather than having floating mounting hardware
  • Mounting hardware options attach to different types of tanks; including horizontal tanks
  • Allows for thermal changes, providing accurate readings when physical changes in the tank occur due to thermal expansion and contraction
  • Constructed of 17-4 Stainless steel, heat treated to PH900 for a strong, low profile load cell
  • NEMA – 6P water resistant
