- RoHS compliant
The 200 Kg Button Load Cell is used in applications that require a thin form factor. The bottom of the load cell is bolted, and force applied to the button on the top. By loading only the button, which is slightly rounded, it is less sensitive to errors resulting from the load not pushing down exactly straight on it. It designed to measure a specific force, and ignores other forces being applied. The electrical signal output by it is very small and requires specialized amplification. Fortunately, the PhidgetBridge will perform all the amplification and measurement of the electrical output.
