A superb low cost weighing solution, yet surprisingly accurate with good long life features.
The AST is an S-Type tension load cell with MB threads on the 100kg and 250kg, and M12 threads on the 500kg and 1t models.
This is one of the most cost effective S-Type tension cells available.
Robustly constructed in design with carefully selected high strength aircraft aluminium, it is an ideal selection for most industrial weighing applications.
Used extensively in the agricultural industry it has proved to be a rugged long life load cell. Marine grade anodised the AST has an excellent protection rating of IP67 and is backed by a three-year warranty.
Many of the metric accessories throughout our accessory range can be used with this model load cell.
