Custom Load Cell Transducers

Custom Load Cell Transducers

Massload specializes in designing and manufacturing custom load cell transducers in Canada and the United States. If you have an application and cannot find a suitable load cell, our engineering team will work with you to get you the information you need and develop a load cell that will meet your requirements.

Highlights

  • Custom load cells provide versatility for any load application
  • Custom designed and engineered to meet specific capacity, overload, and loading requirements

Custom Load Cell Features

  • Engineered to your specific capacity
  • Sized to meet your load and support application
  • Safe overload capacity typically 150% FS
  • Ultimate overload capacity typical 400% FS, up to SF 10:1 for safety critical applications
  • Temperature compensated
  • Materials are 4340 or 17-4 PH stainless steel
  • All material sourced from quality mills in USA or Europe
  • Surface finish: Electro-less nickel or electro-polished stainless steel
  • Output options include mV/V, 4-20 mA, 0-10V, wireless, and more

Custom Load Cell Design Process

  • We start by discussing your weighing application. Typically our engineers will work with your management and/or engineers to identify the optimal load cell design
  • A price estimate is then provided
  • When you are ready to proceed, we typically request a deposit on the order
  • Upon receipt of the deposit, we engineer the load cell and provide you with engineered approval drawings for final approval
  • When drawings are approved, detailed engineering and manufacturing commences
  • Lead time is subject to material availability and production loading, but is typically quite fast.

WIRELESS LOAD CELL CONNECTION

Load can be wirelessly transmitted to a variety of T24 wireless readout indicator options (see wireless digital readout indicator). Wireless load cells can be cabled connected to a T24 wireless transmitter powered by 2 D-cell batteries (optional AA or AAA batteries) or alternatively, the transmitter and batteries can be installed within the load cell as in Massload’s wireless tension link range. The transmitter goes to sleep mode when not in use to extend battery life to 1 year or more. The wireless signal is very robust with a long range of 2600 feet line of sight.

See more information under Wireless.

WIRELESS DIRECT TO PLC

Massload’s T24-AO1 analogue output module provides 4-20mA output signal direct to the PLC. Simple install a T24 wireless transmitter to the load cell and wirelessly connect direct to the PLC. This greatly simplifies installation cost.
