Pancake Load Cells represent one of the more common configurations offered for force measurement applications because their low profile can be installed within limited real estate. Stellar Technology provides a comprehensive offering of pancake load cells including tension, compression, and combination tension/compression designs with load ranges from 5 pounds-force to millions of pounds force.

Pancake Load Cells
All Stellar Technology pancake load cells incorporate bonded foil strain gauge technology to ensure stability for higher temperature applications, reliability in demanding conditions, and design flexibility. Each pancake load cell incorporates a dual diaphragm design which provides excellent off-axis performance.
To meet the complex variety of customer requirements, Stellar Technology provides an array of pancake load cells, constructed of all welded stainless steel, aluminum or 4130.
Pancake load cells designed for tension and compression applications which have a threaded thru-hole that comes with standard thread configurations and mounting holes to accommodate standard bolt diameters.
Customers can also specify metric threads or special threads and mounting holes consistent with safety factors that are specific to each application. These same load cells can be calibrated for tension-only application or provided with a load button accessory for compression-only applications.
Load cell static accuracies range from 0.03% of full scale output to 0.10% of full scale output. The standard electrical output for our pancake load cells is mV/V. Nearly all of these pancake load cells can be made with high level analog current, analog voltage, or digital outputs.
The high level output load cells come with an internal signal conditioner that has proprietary electronics.
Every unit, whether amplified or mV/V output, are created with standard electrical receptacles (MS3102-14S-6P, PTIH-10-6P, MIL-C-5015). Customer-specified electrical terminations are able to be applied to these units.
Each STI pancake load cell is made with a calibration record with a minimum of 11 calibration references for hysteresis, linearity, repeatability, and temperature.
