This low cost tension/compression load cell is an especially robust component, which can be easily integrated in a girder assembly between two cables or chains for measuring force. The standard model comes with internal thread, allowing any adapter parts, for instance eye brackets, to be fitted in the axis of symmetry. Alternatively, the optionally available adapters with external thread can be used for quick and easy screw-fitting into a threaded hole made for the purpose.
The radial connection cable is extremely flexible and designed for a wide range of motion. In order to achieve the greatest possible stability for such a small sensor, making it suitable not only for the laboratory but also for industrial use, all parts have been welded together including the cable guide bush in the sensor housing.
The measurement element is a membrane perpendicular to the axis of the sensor with a strain gage full bridge applied to the inner surface, which requires stable excitation with a rated value of approx. 1 mV/V.
burster TEDS with an electronic sensor datasheet or standardization of the output signal in the sensor connecting cable are offered as options.
