These units are designed for strip tension measurement in applications where it is essential or advantageous to determine the vertical force component. Machined from a single block of stainless steel, they have exceptionally high tolerance for overloads, shock and impact, in addition to high immunity to dust and corrosion. The standard construction is of high resistant stainless steel with potted internal components. Mill-duty versions are available for exceptionally hostile environments in i.e. galvanizing or pickling lines. The first Pressductor transducer was developed in Västerås, Sweden, in the early 1950's and patented in 1954. ABB's well-known Pressductor® Technology is a measurement principle based on the magnetoelastic effect - the magnetic properties of a material are influenced by the mechanical force applied to it. When exposed to mechanical force, ABB's Pressductor transducer produces measurement signals as a result of changes in magnetic fields. (Move your mouse over the illustration to see these changes.) Because these signals are not contingent upon physical movement or deformation, the load cells combine sensitivity with extraordinary tolerance to overloads and virtually no built-in limit to the number of load cycles.
