Loadstar's iLoad Analog Series load cell, based on new break-through technology, provides several unique benefits that make it usable across a wide range of applications. The iLoad Analog load cell has signal conditioning electronics built into the sensor itself, and does not need specialized external equipment for output measurement. The sensor itself is small, thin, and rugged, and provides high reliability as well as space-saving benefits to manufacturers. It mounts easily using commonly available hardware.

Loadstar’s breakthrough comes from its use of capacitive technology for load sensing. Unlike conventional resistive load cells based on either strain gauges or piezo-resistive techniques, Loadstar’s patented technology harnesses changes in capacitance to measure loads quickly and accurately.

The sensor accepts a 5V DC input signal and outputs an analog 0.5V – 4.5V DC signal proportional to the applied load. The full scale output range is 4000 mV — two hundred times that of traditional strain-gauge-based load cells. This signal can easily be measured using commonly available Digital Multi-meters. Loadstar provides a calibration chart of load vs voltage.

If you're looking for digital output, check out our digital load cells. Users seeking a frequency based output should review our miniature load cell only 1.25 inches in diameter.

If you use our hybrid adapter board HX-100, you can obtain digital USB output as well as analog 0.5-4.5V DC signal simultaneously.

Loadstar Sensors' award winning capacitive load cells offer unmatched ease of use in a low profile, rugged and integrated package. Our capacitive load cells offer serial, USB as well as Analog (0-5V DC) output without the need for any special signal conditioning equipment.

These sensors are excellent for applications in controlled room temperature conditions such as those available in R & D labs, Universities and test facilities where one needs to do a quick measurement of loads and forces, log data and visualize the data as a force vs. time plot.  Our USB or wireless load cells can be used directly with a PC while our analog load cells with 0-5 VDC output are ideal for use with a PLC or existing data acquisition system.
