S-Beam Tension and Compression Load Cell - 8512 - Highly accurate, very flat design, simple force application, Many load cycles


Model 8512 bending beam load cells are designed for measuring tension and compression forces. Their high accuracy, low torque sensitivity and thanks to the very flat design make these sensors particularly suitable for use in weighing and dosing technology as well as for laboratory and production use. Extremely simple force application makes the sensor easy to handle. It offers a very favorable price/performance ratio and can be used universally for static and dynamic measurements. Examples of application: —Dosing system —Automated tool testing —Tension force measurement for wire or thread winders —Test and analysis systems in the pharma industry —Withdrawal force —Measuring loads in cable systems Features —Measuring ranges from 0 … 20 N to 0 … 880 N —Non-linearity < 0.1 % F.S. —Many load cycles —Protection class IP54 —Excellent price-performance ratio
