Miniature tension and compression load cell - 8417

Model 8417-Small dimensions, robust, quick and easy assembling, stainless steel


Load cell model 8417 measures the tension or compression force between both axially mounted metric exterior 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 - even on the front - must be avoided. 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. The connection cable is led radially out of the housing through a sleeve which is used for strain relief. FEATURES: —Measuring ranges from 0 ... 10 N to 0 ... 5 kN —Very small dimensions —Made of stainless steel —Rugged construction —Simple screw mounting —burster TEDS optionally available
