OMEGA’s LC201 Series subminiature load cell is designed for the demanding environment of industrial automation and robotics. With a diameter of only 0.75" (19 mm) and all stainless steel construction, it can fit into small systems and survive harsh environments. The LC201 delivers high accuracy and long term reliability in a subminiature package.

The LC 201 is also available in metric configurations, with ranges from 0-100 to 0-500 N and metric threads. Please see the LCM201 for complete details, or contact our Pressure department for more information..

I'm confused about the 2 mV/V output spec. For the LC201-300, if I have a 12V excitation and a 100 lb load, what should the output voltage be? Please include the calculation equation. Thanks!

Asked by: JohnK
Thank you for your inquiry The load cell will work up to 15 vdc. At 12 vdc you will get a 20% higher output the what was on your calibration sheet. Hope this was helpful?

What would be the maximum load that could be applied to the cell before damage would be induced? For example I have an application where I need accurate results up to 80N but I have intermittent loads up to 180N but I do not need data above 80N.

Asked by: Alex Milburn
Thank you for your question? The LCM201-100N Has a maximum rating of 150n. So no you can not go to 180n

Is there any way to have a "special" mode in order to operate above 120°C ? I need to perform some measurements at 150°C. Thank in advance,

Asked by: Jeff R
Yes. We can provide an extended temperature compensation for the LC201/LCM201 Series load cells. By adding a "-TC2" suffix at the end of the part number the compensated temperature range would be increased 180C. You would need to add $125.00 to the base price of the load.
