LCT100 Load Cell Tester

ANYLOAD LCT100 Load Cell Tester is a stand-alone hand-held device that was specially designed for full troubleshooting of strain-gage based load cells. The LCT100 is equipped with the following features and functions:

  • Can check all common types of standard load cells that are available in the market ( 4 or 6 wires at all rated gain output )
  • Provides the user with all essential data needed about the tested load cell: Bridge resistance and integrity, physical distortion and can check insulation resistance
  • Can be used to check multi load-cell scale alignment
  • Continuous signal reading allows checking linearity and repeatability
  • Very user friendly, full test within seconds
  • Enclosure material: ABS
  • Battery supply: 4 AA batteries

In order to properly check a load cell or a scale, the following tests and equipment are required:

Required Test Needed Equipment
Bridge resistance and cable integrity DVM (Digital Voltmeter)
Insulation to detect moisture ingress Megger tester to check up to 5000 Mega Ohms resistance
Zero balance to point on physical distortion or metal fatigue 5.5 Digits DVM + Power Supply + Calculator
Linearity 5.5 Digits DVM + Power Supply + Calculator

And, a skilled technician to do all required calculations.


All required tests can now be easily conducted and finished in less than a minute with the Load Cell Tester-LCT100.
