Precision force transducers have capacities up to 1MN
22 April 2010
The SCL compression loadcell from Celsum Technologies can be supplied with full scale ranges between 1 tonne and 100 tonnes, or 10kN and 1,000kN (or 1MN). Fabricated from stainless steel, these precision force transducers are sealed to IP67 and use a 700 ohm strain gauge bridge with a sensitivity of 1.5mV/V.
Offering long term resistance to fatigue, the SCL loadcells have a high cycle life, a safe overload capacity of 150% of full scale, and an ultimate overload limit of 300% of full scale. The maximum error is 0.05% of full scale, and they have a compensated temperature range of 0 to 50°C. Excitation voltages of 5 to 15 volts ac or dc may be used, and traceable calibration certificates may be supplied for just the loadcell or for the loadcell with instrumentation. For systems using multiple load cells, the outputs of the sensors can be standardised.
"The SCL load cell is a welcome addition to the range that we offer, with applications from materials testing through to weighing, and from on-line process control to R & D and quality control," says Celsum's Roy Carter. "As well as this an other load cells, we offer a wide range of instrumentation, too, from simple analogue amplifiers to digital electronics with computer interfaces and precision digital displays and controllers, to state-of-the-art wireless telemetry."
