The model 8527 high-precision compression load cell is the ideal load cell for reference measurement chains where highly precise measurement results are required. Its very high production quality and extremely low non-linearity of just 0.035 % F.S. make it a dependable choice for comparative measurements and calibration tasks.
Designed for a dynamic stress of up to 100 % of the full scale value, the model 8527 load cell is also suitable for situations where a rapid signal change with high amplitude occurs and has to be measured.
The model 8527 high-precision compression load cell has a domed load button on top, onto which the compressive load being measured is applied. Inside the load cell is an elastic membrane, on which strain gages generate a resistance change in the measuring bridge and an output signal proportional to the load. For the best possible measurement results, the force should be applied axially and centrically to the load button. The mounting surface should ideally be hardened (60 HRC) and should not bend under the applied load.
