Model F1280

Compact Design, up to 500 kN,

Compact electric compression force transducer

This sensor is especially suited to the measurement of static and quasi-static compressive forces. The very robust and compact design make it suitable for the use in industrial environments  as well as in laboratories and testing bays. The model F1280 series are available for rated values in the range between 0.25 kN ... 500 kN.

As a galvanized version it is for a lower price available than a stainless steel version. But it's robust design makes it still suitable for harsh industrial applications.

The sensor is protected against splash water (protection class IP67) and works with very great reliability under extreme conditions.

The range of applications for this load cell covers countless industrial applications which need a robust design and a high protection class.

It is suitable for the use in industrial environments as well as in laboratory and testing bays. Due to the way the force is applied the force transducer is easy to use. The force is applied vertically to the load cell axis at the ball-shaped scraper. Threads on the bottom side are used to fasten the load cell.
