Tension load cells

Scotload’s tension load cells are easy to install and offer a highly accurate method of measuring tensile loads.

Suitable for lifting, process weighing and general measurement applications and an effective alternative to load shackles, our tension load cells are available in three main types:

  • Flat plate
  • S or Z beam
  • Column tension load cells

How long will it take to dispatch?

Most of our stock is already in stock, available for immediate dispatch. Larger capacity load cells will often take around 2-3 weeks until dispatch. If you need it sooner than this, please contact us for more information – an express service is available.

What is the range of your wireless system?

With SmartLoad®, you can achieve 350m (direct line of sight) using our wireless handset. If you need more than this, SmartLoad® also offers a range of transmitters and receivers to enable you to receive load out information well over 3000m. And if you need further than this, our wall mounted display also offers output via Ethernet, meaning you can essentially relay this information anywhere on the globe with an internet connection.

What connections does SmartLoad® have?

None. Our system is fully wireless (we do have wired version which are not SmartLoad® variants). That being said, these can be connected to either a PC or wall mounted display (options) which offers a range of standard connections you can utilize.

Is a calibration certificate supplied?

Yes – a full calibration certificate is supplied, valid for 1 year from date of issue 

Do I have a warranty with my load cell?

Yes – a standard 1 year manufacturer’s warranty is included. For extended warranty packages, please contact us for more information. 

Is it shipped with batteries?

For UK orders, yes. For orders overseas, we recognize that often the batteries will actually delay being processed in customs and therefore we do not ship these with batteries. If you would like these however, please state this and we will ensure they are shipped along with your load cell.
