The LC101 series has been replaced by the LC103B series. The new LC103B series has the same features and high accuracy but at a lower price point. Many ranges are in stock available for immediate shipment.

S-Beam load cells that receive tension or compression output readings. Applications include tank weighing hoppers suspended loads and truck scales. S-Beam load cells provide superior performance in an compact versatile package. Install using rod ends or load buttons for best performance.

The LC101 & LC111 are also available in metric configurations with ranges from 0-10 to 0-10 000 kgf and metric threads. Please see the LCM101 for complete details or contact our Pressure department for more information.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The S beam load cell I received my load cell several weeks ago and it is well worth the value. The accuracy, durability, and workmanship are outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great load cell, when it is available in time. We have several of these in our product test lab, and they work great, just as described. They are accurate. We excite them with an Omron 12V power supply and feed the signal into a National Instrument C Series analog input module. My only gripe is lead time. We have had to choose a less-than-optimal load range and the hard-wired cord instead of the bayonet lug because the one we wanted was 4, 8 or 12 weeks lead time. I wish it didn't take so long to get a catalog item.

Is this load cell susceptible to high vibration? I am running a test that sees significant vibration for 24 hours or longer and the last load cell that I had stopped working. The load was consistent between 2000-2050 LBS and the load cell stopped working.

Asked by: Md W
The short answer is yes. Load cells have a difficult time because of their construction . The wires can break and the connection would be lost. Also theirs the issue of overloading. Please contact us to discuss with are engineers of a possible solution.

what is the frequency response of the load cells? Can they be used to measure dynamic (variable in time at high frequency) loads?

Asked by: rliu
Thank you for contacting Omega. The load cells we carry are not intended for high frequency measurements. Typically they are good for measurements up to about 100 Hz.

I wanted to know what is a compatible amplifier that we can use with this load cell, LC101-50?

Asked by: Aerospace Engineer
Thank you for your inquire We have a variety of amps available a few models are DMD466,DMD4059 &amp; DMD465

Can the top and bottom rest against a surface or does the load cell need to be off set with rod ends?

Asked by: Justin R
Tank you for your question? The load cell works best with rod ends or a load button. The cell will still work if you measure the load with the top and bottom
