This tension/compression load cell is widely used where it is necessary to measure directly in the force line. It is possible, for example, to measure the actual force in ropes and rods.
The force is applied to this tension/compression load cell via threaded bolts, which are located on each side of the cylindrical body. The force application has to be centrically, torsion and bending moments are to be avoided.
To prevent overload, it is advantageous to connect up the transducer electrically during installation and to monitor the measured value.
In mounting the force transducer torsion and bending moments have to be avoided. The force must be applied at the centre and without radial stress.
