Load Cell Tester model LCT-Ultimate


This most advanced Load Cell Tester model LCT-Ultimate is a stand-alone hand-held device that was especially designed for full trouble shooting of strain-gage based load cells. The LCT-Ultimate can check all common types of standard load cells that are available on the market:

4 or 6 wires @ all rated gain outputs.

The LCT-Ultimate provides the user with all essential data needed about the tested load-cell:

  • Bridge resistance and integrity
  • Physical distortion (possibly caused by overload, shock, load or metal fatigue)
  • Checks insulation resistance (can point to moisture or chemical ingress)

Main Features

  • Fast testing of load cells and scales
  • Can be used to check multi load-cell scale alignment.
  • Continuous signal reading allows for checking linearity and repeatability
  • Very user friendly, full test within 5 seconds


  • Input and Output resistance: up to 5000 ohm at 0.5 ohm resolution
  • Sense resistance (for 6 wire L/C): up to 500 ohm at 0.1 ohm resolution
  • Insulation resistance: Max:> 5000 Mohm and Minimum: <10 Mohm
  • Load cell output in percentage of full scale: ± 250% at 0.01% resolution (input load > 50?)
  • Gain adjustment: 0.1 – 5 mv/V steps of 0.01

Hardware and Accuracy

  • Bridge testing: 1.25 Vdc
  • High resistance testing: 10 Vdc
  • A/D resolution: 16bit
  • Resistance accuracy: ± 1 ohm
  • High-resistance accuracy: 10%
  • Load Cell output accuracy: 0.1%


  • Power source: 4 AA batteries (not supplied)
  • Connector: 8 pin screw terminal (supplied with the unit).
  • Enclosure material: ABS
  • Display: 16×2 alphanumeric
  • Size: 150mm x 80mm x 28mm
  • Weight: 250gr.
