Digital Capacitive Load Cells

Digital Load Cells with a Difference

Automated Process Equipment Corporation’s (APEC) digital load cells are integrated into our renowned process automation systems and are designed to incorporate easily into almost any design.

APEC’s load cells use capacitance to measure the load on the cells, which means double the accuracy, as well as improving the cell’s protection against overload, electrical noise, and signal loss.

We take great pride in the design and operating effectiveness of our digital load cells, which have been successfully utilized worldwide in a variety of industrial applications.

  • RG58 Cables: Our load cells utilize RG58 cables (available in multiple covering options). These non-proprietary cables are field-repairable, and can be replaced and extended without requiring recalibration
  • Overload Protection: Up to 1000% overload rating
  • Construction: Stainless Steel and welded hermetic sealing for protection in washdown environments
  • ATEX Certified: For ATEX Zones 1 and 2 (hazardous gas, vapor and mist environments) and ATEX Zones 21 and 22 (hazardous dust environments)

APEC’s line of load cells, instrumentation and communications modules are designed to make implementation simple.


Our digital load cells are an integral part of our own processing solutions, but are designed to integrate smoothly into nearly any design.

Available mounting plate options and load checking hardware make APEC’s digital load cells the perfect option to fit your weight-based process control systems.
