Cardinal Load Cells

Cardinal Load Cells

Cardinal Scale, an ISO-9001 certified scale manufacturer, markets a complete line of quality weighing products and systems. Cardinal’s headquarters is in Webb City, Missouri, USA. Central Carolina Scale is proud to offer the Cardinal Scale load cell line of products. Load cells convert force into an electrical signal and are an essential component of hanging scales, truck scales, railroad track scales, and many other medical and industrial weighing systems. The load cell sensor detects force and moves the strain gauge, which then measures the movement as an electrical signal that can be used to give power to the scale. Cardinal Scales is one of the largest load cell and strain gauge manufacturers. Cardinal features a wide variety of load cells for use with all weighing systems. From powerful aluminum alloy electronic load cells to durable stainless steel load cells, each model is available in a range of capacities. Cardinal also offers several hydraulic load cell models that provide accurate weighing in harsh conditions because they are water-proof and immune to lightning. Choose one of Cardinal's reliable load cells to keep your scales or weighing systems running smoothly.
