Small in size but not in performance, OMEGA’s LCKD Series subminiature compression load cells are designed to measure load ranges from 1 kg to 1000 lb. Rugged all stainless steel construction and high performance strain gages assure superior linearity and stability. All models include a 5-pt NIST traceable calibration to assure an accurate installation.
Temperature compensation is achieved through a miniature circuit board which is included in the load cell’s cable. These units are designed to be mounted on a smooth, flat surface.

The LCKD is also available in metric configurations, with ranges from 0-10 to 0-5,000 N. Please see the LCMKD in related items below for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..

What is the resolution of the LCKD series and LMCKD series? What is the accuracy of the sensors?

Asked by: Esau
Combined accuracy of the LCKD/LCMKD Series load cell is 0.37% of the full scale range. Resolution depends on the how small of a signal change the instrumentation you are using to read the output signal can detect.
