Pancake Load Cells – HITEC Sensor Developments

The Pancake Load Cells from HITEC are compact, universal force sensors. These low profile units have a small outer diameter and can measure both tension and compression. The sensor’s shear web design provides high performance and offers high resistance to extraneous forces such as bending, side loads, and torsion. For compression only applications, an optional load button can be added. A base plate is also available.
