Load / Force / Torque Sensor Models

Load cells and force sensors engineered and manufactured by Stellar Technology can be found in industrial applications around the world, in market sectors such as aerospace, oil & gas, automotive, automation & control, medical and many more.

We are proud to offer one of the most comprehensive selections of standard and stocked load cells in the test and measurement industry with ranges from a few grams to 2,000,000 pounds, tension or compression operation, and accuracies to 0.03%.

Our proprietary electronics provide high-level mV/V, along with analog and digital outputs including RS232, RS485 and CANbus. Fully welded stainless steel construction means that STI load cells will stand up to the rigors of any application.
