This tension/compression load cell is an especially small component, which can be easily integrated in a girder assembly between two cables or chains for measuring force. The outside threadings along its axis of symmetry can accommodate various adapters or are suitable for screwing into a threaded hole that is quick and easy to produce.
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 include the determining forces in Bowden cable, testing the durability of soldered and welded joints, measuring tractive forces of plug connections or monitoring forces when winding cables onto cable reels.
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.
