What is a miniature load cell?

A miniature load cell, or micro-load cell, can be thought of as the little brother to full-sized load cells. This mini load cell is designed to measure smaller loads, such as those found in medical, industrial and consumer applications. Often used as an alternative to traditional strain gauges, these load cells are much smaller than traditional types of load cells and don’t require external equipment to be installed in order to work properly. This makes miniature load cells ideal for a variety of different uses where space is at a premium and where larger-scale options just aren’t feasible.
