Product information "Compression Load cell V71N"

The V71N stainless steel load cell is a low profile load cell for compression loading. The electro-polished stainless steel construction in its hygienic design is optimally suited for environments with high demands on cleanliness and hygiene. Due to the central, free-swinging force application, this compression load cell is largely insensitive to eccentric or lateral loads. The load cell is made of high-quality stainless steel, hermetically laser-welded and meets the requirements of protection class IP68.

Area of application

Weighing systems for tank and slo systems in the food and in the pharmaceutical industry. Measuring the compressive force and general force measurement.


  • Compression load cell for tank and silo
  • Material: stainless steel
  • Capacity: 500 - 30.000 kg
  • Protection class: IP 66
  • Construction: The measuring element is laser-welded
  • Load transfer: Central released oscillating force application
  • Robust and overload-proof for long life
  • Matching mounting modules for various types of containers


Accurate weighing is ensured by the disc-shaped stainless steel compression load cell with base and top plate, anti-lift device and transverse force and moment-free force application.
The low overall height and the integrated anti-lift device with central, free-swinging force application make this compression load cell largely insensitive to eccentric or lateral loads.
A significant advantage of the compact load cell is the high lateral and lift-off safety.
The compression load cells are fixed at the ends by bolts on a stable base plate.
