Like all of the LowProfile™ models, the 1201 LowProfile™ load cell provides "compression only" force measurement. It's spherical shaped top surface helps provide minimal off-axis loading.
The 1201 LowProfile™ is Interface’s most popular load cell designed for static applications. The 1201 has higher output than most competitive load cells and is designed for compression-only applications requiring a load cell compensated for eccentric loads. If you need to measure 1lb or 400K pounds of force, Interface Inc. load cells can do it. The gage sensors in every load cell are individually inspected and tested, and certified to meet our rigid standards. Formed from a unique alloy, our gages provide very low resistivity, for high signal-to-noise ratios for demanding applications.
