Small in size but not in performance, OMEGA's LCMKD Series compression load cells are designed to measure load ranges from 10 to 10,000 Newtons. Rugged all stainless steel construction and high performance strain gauges assure superior linearity and stability. Temperature compensation is achieved through a miniature circuit board which is included in the cable. These units are designed to be mounted on a smooth, flat surface .

The LCMKD is also available in standard configurations, with ranges from 0-2.2 to 0-1,000 lb. Please see the LCKD in related items below for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from dealing with Omega Omega quotes and ordering has become seamless, nice work. Omega keeps you "in the loop" with the movement of the product/purchase. no Guessing!!!

What are the Accuracy and Creep specifications for LCKD-5 and LCKD-1?

Asked by: Francis
Hello, thank you for contacting Omega Engineering. We do not have the exact creep spec for this load cell , but the nominal value is 0.01 to 0.1 percent of rated output. For additional resource please see: The accuracy spec of this load cell will be 0.367% of the full scale output.

What are the dimensions of the load cell, specifically, what is the diameter? Also how would you set this up in a Arduino?

Asked by: AbelTheTable
Diameter of the LCMKD load cells will vary depending on it's load range. Dimensions for each load range are indicated on the full data that you can access on the our websit. We would have no information on setup of this unit in an Arduino
