C11 miniature button load cell C11 Subminiature Load Cell for Compressive Forces | HBM

C11 Subminiature Load Cell: Extremely Compact Dimensions and an Outstanding Temperature Range

The load cell design is based on the robust membrane principle. Due to its high stiffness, the C11 can be used for fast force measurements; the strain gauge principle also allows static measurements. Despite its minimal dimensions, the sensor has good accuracy. The button load cell casing is made of stainless steel to allow for industrial use. The C11 is designed as a Faraday cage; cable shield and sensor housing are galvanically connected. This guarantees interference-free measurements even under unfavorable EMC conditions. It also offers an outstanding temperature range from -20 to +120 °C.
The load is applied at the top by a spherical load button, which facilitates a central force application.
