Cardinal Shear Beam

Cardinal’s American-made model SB shear beam load cells promote a variety of applications, such as low-profile platform scales, tank and hopper weighing, and other process control systems. Constructed of high-grade stainless steel, these load cells offers strength and protection from caustic or corrosive environments. Provided with the load cell are mounting holes for securing the cell, and a 6 m integral multiconductor-shielded cable secured by a compression strain relief seal. These cells are welded closed, providing superior waterproofing, while remaining flexible over the life of the load cell. NTEP legal-for-trade and OIML certified. Available in multiple capacities.
