General Info

Strainsert standard Universal Load Cells are offered in a wide force measurement range from 250 up to 2 million pounds. They are designed to measure forces in both tension and compression directions in research, testing and control applications.

The structure of the load cells are simple and compact, consisting of an inner loading hub and an outer supporting flange bridged smoothly by a uniformly continuous solid shear web avoiding structural stress risers. Strainsert strain gages are installed and sealed inside small gage holes along the neutral axis of the web. Linearity and symmetry of output signal in tension and compression are obtained by equal straining of all shear gages in the bridge circuit of the load cells. Low deflection and high natural frequency of the load cell are obtained, along with high resistance to extraneous forces. Mechanical and dynamic properties of the load cells are fully tabulated.

Some Features Include:
•   Precision Load Sensing                  •   Easy Installation
•   Rugged, Compact and Lightweight   •   Direct Force Measurement
•   Internally Sealed Strain Gages        •   Low Sensitivity to Extraneous Loads
