A single-point load cell is similar to a single-ended beam but designed for lighter capacity applications such as bench scales. Most commonly constructed of aluminum. Capacities range from 1 to 1,000 kilograms
A single-ended beam load cell is a beam-shaped load cell that is secured at one end with the load applied to the opposite end. Construction varies depending on application. Capacities range from 1,000 to 20,000 pounds.
A double-ended beam load cell is a beam-shaped load cell secured at both ends with the load applied to the center. Construction varies depending on application. Capacities range from 1,000 to 200,000 pounds.
An s-beam load cell is shaped like the letter S and most commonly used to suspend a weighing vessel with tension applied through stretching. Capacities typically range from 25 to 40,000 pounds.
A canister load cell is cylindrical in shape with force applied vertically in tension or compression. Ideal for heavy-capacity and environmentally demanding applications. Capacities range from 20,000 to 500,000
