The Robust Load Cell for All Heavy Loads

The self-restoring C16A load cells are extremely robust, reliable, and versatile and can also be used for very high loads.

Type C16A Self-Restoring Load Cell: Reliable Weighing up to 400 Tons

The C16 rocker pin load cell ensure optimal force application, are especially robust and allow for precise weighing up to a maximum capacity, ranging from 20 to 400 tons—and an accuracy class up to C5 per OIML R60. They are also suitable for use in harsh environments, for example, in weighbridges for road or rail vehicles or for level measurement in silos. In addition, C16A load cell with IP 69K degree of protection and explosion proof IECEx-ATEX design are also available. A rotation stop, Ooervoltage protection, and robust cable variants offer additional protection.

  • Accuracy class: up to C5
  • Maximum capacity: 20 to 400 tons
  • Degrees of protection: IP68 and IP69K


  • Accuracy class up to C5 (corresponds to OIML class III)
  • Legal for trade weighing system of up to 5,000 divisions
  • 6-wire configuration for compensating changes in resistance and cables that can be cut to length individually
  • Self-restoring and equipped with rotation stop that prevents rotation about the y-axis
  • Optimized for parallel connection including off-center load compensation
