C2 Load Cell: Reliable Compressive Force Measurement From 0.5 to 200 kN

The C2 load cell measures compressive force up to 200 kN in many fields of application such as production, monitoring or test bench. It is robust, durable and, as a fast sensor, the tried and tested standard for compressive force measurement in static and dynamic applications -  also under harsh conditions such as force measurement of pressing and forming processes. The C2 force sensor is the original and synonymous with reliability. It also is a best-seller in HBM’s extensive and enhanced range of force transducers for industry applications.

  • HBM accuracy class: up to 0.1 (0.5 kN: 0.2)
  • Capacities: 0.5 kN to 200 kN


  • Excellent dynamic behavior due to very small displacement
  • Fast sensor for fast processes
  • 2 mV/V output signal
  • Precise monitoring of static force through use of strain gauge technology

Highly reliable test results due to tried and tested technology


  • Made of stainless steel
  • Hermetically encapsulated and laser welded
  • IP67 degree of protection (dust, water)
  • Shock and EMC tested in the HBM calibration laboratory
  • Excellent lateral force compensation

Suited to use in many applications under harsh conditions due to comprehensive protection

Future-proof standard

  • Continual product improvement
  • Consistent dimensions and connections
  • Long-term availability of calibration service and spare parts
  • Flexible configuration: various cable lengths, TEDS and plug assemblies
  • Compact design

A safe decision: Consistent mechanical dimensions and electrical characteristics over decades.
