Product information "Single point load cell H42A"

The H42A is a single point load cell made from Aluminium. The load cell is suitable for bench scales, platform scales and weighing machines with accuracy class III.  The load cell H42A is approved to OIML R60 up to 3000d and gives extremely accurate reproducible results, over a long term even in harsh industrial environments. Each individual load cell H42A is corner adjusted and optimised for out of 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

  • Material: Aluminium
  • Capacity: 150 - 750 kg
  • Accuracy class C3, Y=10.000 
  • Approved to OIML R60 up to 3000d 
  • Design: The measuring element is potted 
  • Protection class: IP 65 
  • Off center load compensated 
  • Load Cell is suitable for platform sizes up to 600 x 600 mm
  • Robust flat design for harsh industrial environment
  • Compatible with other sources


The large bolting and four threaded holes front and rear provide ideal conditions for easy construction of a scale with large platform dimensions.


The construction of a platform scale with this load cell is very simple. Simply mount the load cell, using the two large mounting surfaces, between two rigid plates creating a scale with platform up to 600 x 600 mm.
