Morehouse Adds New Compact Load Cell to its Extensive Line

Morehouse Adds New Compact Load Cell to its Extensive Line

Space constraints and side load sensitivity solved with 25K, 50K, and 100K capacities.

YORK, Pa. (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — For applications where large load cells will not fit, Morehouse Instrument Company has introduced a series of compact multi-column load cells. The three new models (25K, 50K, and 100K) are packaged in small, stainless steel cans and deliver very repeatable accuracy.

“We’ve heard from customers loud and clear that space is always at a premium. We are meeting this challenge with our new compact load cells, which are small enough to easily fit in small spaces and have the measurement capability to do the same job as larger counterparts,” according to Henry Zumbrun, President of Morehouse.

These strain gauge load cells offer less creep and better zero returns than single-column load cells. The lower uncertainties of these load cells allow for fewer standards to maintain. The new 25K, 50K, and 100K capacities expands on their current capacities of 200K, 300K-600K, 750K-1000K, and 1500K.

Design benefits are:

  • Accuracies better than 0.0125 % of full scale
  • Repeatable measurement with multi-column design
  • Connector protector ensures durability in shipping and handling
  • Rust-resistant stainless steel material
  • Temperature compensated

Key case dimensions are as follows:

  • 25K model: 2.95” (74.8 mm) W x 3.25” (82.6 mm) H
  • 50K model: 2.95” (74.8 mm) W x 3.00” (76.2 mm) H
  • 100K model: 4.02” (102 mm) W x 3.75” (95.3 mm).

Wiring is very accessible from the side and clearly marked for easy connection: red and black for positive and negative excitation, green and white for positive and negative output, and yellow for shield.
