Model BS23 is a low profile single ended shear beam load cell designed for high accuracy platform scales, pallet scales and process weighing applications. It has high immunity to shock or side loading. Nickel plating and full environmental sealing assure long term reliability.

The two additional sense wires feed back the voltage reaching the load cell. Complete compensation of changes in lead resistance due to temperature change and/or cable extension, is achieved by feeding this voltage into the appropriate electronics.

Also Available from True-Tec: The Model BS23 load cell can be supplied with self leveling rubber feet for use in low profile platforms. Cellmates and Tank mounts are also available.
