CRITEC® LCP – Loadcell Protector


CRITEC® LCP - Loadcell Protector

The loadcell protector provides protection to loadcells from lightning induced transients. Experience has shown that the strain gauge bridge is easily damaged by surges or transients.

The LCP is well suited to the protection of measuring cells on industrial cranes, which are prime targets for lightning strikes.
