  • Description

    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.

    Typical areas of application:

    • All areas of mechanical engineering
    • Automated production plants
    • Tensile force measuring in Bowden cables
    • Measuring tractive forces of plug connections
    • Test equipment for safety areas on rail vehicles

    Load cell model 8427 measures the tension or compression force between both axially mounted metric internal threads on the cylindrical sensor housing. Forces are only applied to the threadings, which are especially long, to accommodate counter nuts and must not be affected by external influences such as bending, lateral force or torsion. 

    Any contact with units affixed to the sensor housing at the active side must be avoided. The measurement element is a membrane perpendicular to the axis of the sensor with a strain gauge full bridge applied to the inner surface, which requires stable excitation with a rated value of approx. 1 mV/V.

    The connection cable is fed radially via Mini PG screw connection from the housing. burster TEDS with an electronic sensor datasheet or standardization of the output signal in the sensor connecting cable are offered as options.
