When high accuracy and low risk are critical, customers rely on Morehouse for our Precision Shear Web Load Cell. These strain gauge-type load cells are often the choice for companies making field measurements in accordance with ASTM E4 and ISO 7500. Lower uncertainties allow for fewer standards to maintain, which significantly lowers lifetime ownership costs. A typical Morehouse Precision Load Cell system will cover a verified range of 4 % to 100 % of the system capacity. For example, to achieve a calibration range of 40 lbf through 600,000 lbf, only three load cells would be required: a 600,000 lbf, a 25,000 lbf, and a 1,000 lbf load cell.
The Morehouse precision load cell is suitable for the following uses:
 When the directions are combined, there may be a reduction in the loading range. The reduction varies by capacity, and the verified range of forces could increase to 20 % of capacity. If the Integral Threaded Adapter is removed, the performance characteristics might double for ASTM E74 and ISO 376 Calibrations.
A common issue with most load cells is the connector breaking. This often results in repair and/or another calibration of the load cell. This is not a problem with the Morehouse precision load cell.
Morehouse Precision Load Cells come with a connector protector and are available in capacities from 300 lbf (1 kN) up to 110,000 lbf (500 kN). After 110,000 lbf (500 kN), load cells can be made to order. Since physical weight increases to over 100 lbs after 110,000 lbf, we recommend Morehouse Multi-Column Load Cells for any capacity above 200,000 lbf.
