Morehouse Ultra-Precision Load Cells are used when high accuracy and low measurement risk are critical. These load cells are designed for stability and reproducibility, making them the #1 choice for metrology-grade load cells. These strain gauge-type load cells are often the choice for companies that want their reference standard to have the lowest possible uncertainties. Lower uncertainties allow for shorter setup times, less frequent standard changes, and fewer standards to maintain.
When calibrated with deadweight Primary Standards, these load cells are 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 Class A and AA verified range of forces could double.
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 Morehouse load cells.
Morehouse Ultra 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.
