Product information "Miniature Load Cell H08A"

The H08A is a ultra compact miniature single point load cell made from aluminum. The load cell is suitable for small platform scales with a platform size up to 120 x 120 mm.
The load cell is ideally suited when only limited installation space is available, such as in the equipment technology. The miniature sensor delivers highly precise and reliable measuring results even in long-term use.
By default, the load cell H08A is tested and optimised for center load sensitivity. This ensures that there will be no measurement error when the load is placed off centre, eg in a corner of a platform. The load cell is potted and meets the requirements of protection class IP65.

Area of application

Kitchen scales, postal scales, filling machines (coffee machines, beverage filling equipment), checkweighers, scales for medical applications.
When used as a force transducer thread tensions in the textile industry or rail voltages in the paper industry can be measured.


These load cells operate on the principle of the double cantilever beam and thus ensure accurate measurements. The design is insensitive to off-center force application and can be used for pushed and pulled forces. Threaded holes for attaching the sensor or the defined force introduction ease installation.


  • Material: Aluminum
  • Capacity: 1 - 5 kg
  • Construction: The measuring element is potted
  • Protection class: IP65
  • Compensated corner load errors
  • Max. Platform size: 120 x 120 mm

The load cell is screwed on with two steel or aluminum plates (max. 200 x 200 mm) using the two screw-on surfaces at the top, front, back and bottom. A parallel connection of several platform load cells is only possible with a balanced output (nominal value and output resistance).
