Many DIGI SENS load cells feature a guideplate, so that only vertical forces are measured. Stray torsional or horizontal forces are filtered out mechanically. The so-called monobloc load cell makes the construction of a platform scales with a single cell possible, as in other applications with eccentric loading.

Because this system only requires a very small deformation, DIGI SENS monobloc load cells have a very high overload-capability and are very robust.
