apart from:"This series, with its all stainless steel construction and environmental protection, has proved reliable in tough industrial applications." Is there an equivalent NEMA/IP enclosure rating or similar humidity or wet locations guidance

Thank you for you question. You may request this with submersible cable or submersible connector to avoid water splashes getting from the electrical termination.

Does the load need to be evenly distributed across the face for accurate measurement? Or can the load contact only one side of the face?

Asked by: Petri
Thank you for your inquire. The load needs to be evenly distributed on the inner ring.

I need a LC8300-150-10K with 15ft long cable, is there a specific part # for such cable length?

Asked by: JORGERA
Yes. You can get a LC8300-1.50-10K load cell with an extra long cable but this would have to be a custom quotation. Please contact Omega for a quote. Typical lead time for a custom variant of this load cell would be 8 weeks ARO.

Can you explain how best to apply a load to this specific model? I have been using a 2.25" ball bearing to rest on the sensing area of the load cell and applying a load with a reference standard.

Asked by: Steve V
Thank you for your inquire Please contact us directly so we can discuss in detail. There are to many variables to give a simple answer. Hope this was helpful
