The compression load cell is particularly suitable for implementation in container, hopper and vehicle scales.

The measuring elements are four square posts made of stainless steel. Four strain gauges are fitted to each post.

The load which acts centrally in the measuring direction causes the spring bodies and therefore the friction-locked strain gauges to be elastically deformed. This generates a measuring signal voltage that is proportional to the load.
