Load Cell Vendors

A selection of load cell and instrumentation vendors, based on my research.

I have used load cells from Futek, Sensotek (now part of Honeywell), and Omega.

Load Cells

Load Cell Instrumentation (Signal Conditioners and such)

  • Adlink The USB-2401 24-bit 4-channel DAQ features built-in signal conditioners for current output transducers, thermocouple, RTD, load cell, strain gauge, and others.
  • Dataq Several models have built-in slots for DI-5B or DI-8B signal conditioners; USB, Ethernet, and data logger interfaces available.
  • Data Translation Some models have built in signal conditioners for strain and bridge-based sensors.
  • Futek - Signal Conditioners (1KHz, 10KHz, and 25KHz available) and USB DAQ devices for load cells
  • HBM A variety of signal conditioners and DAQ systems
  • Hoffmann-Krippner (Inelta)) Signal conditioners and integrated load cells
