Tension, compression load cell, bending beam, miniature, easy installation


The sensor element consists of a double bending beam with applied strain gages. Changes in the ohmic resistance of the strain gage fullbridge caused by applied forces are converted into electrical voltages. The precise value (characteristic value) of the output voltage, resulting from the application of a rated force to the sensor, is specified in the accompanying calibration protocol. The sensor has to be mounted by two screws on the cable side. The opposite side is meant to receive applied forces (loads). Once the rated stress or strain is exceeded by 20 %, further deflection of the bending beam is prevented by an integrated, mechanical stop. This protects the sensor element against permanent deformation.
