Model F5308/F53C8/F53S8

Load Pins Heavy Duty


Load Pins

In addition to our force transducer program with bonded foils, a new force transducer with a welded thin film sensor was developed. The usage of standardised sensors, which are welded into the measuring element, makes an automated manufacturing possible. Combined with an accuracy of 2% or 1%, the load pins are also of interest for OEM applications due to the attractive price- performance ratio.

F5308 Standard version

The load pins in model series F5308 are intended for the measurement of static and dynamic tension or compression force.

F53C8 ATEX / Signal jump

Option 1: ATEX-/IECEx version acc. EN 60079-11:2012 (Ex ib) or acc. EN 60079-1:2007 (Ex d)

Option 2: Signal jump - Safety electronics have been developed especially for theatre and stage applications. With a signal jump, a function test is carried out in an interval of 24 hours in order to monitor the safe function of the force transducer.

F53S8 Safety version

Version acc. to the requirements for functional safety acc. Maschines Directive 2006/42/EG, applies only in combination with a safe control, for example ELMS1 overload protection.

Features

  • Thin film implants
  • Accuracy 2% or 1%
  • Several output signals available
  • Analog standard-output signals (4...20 mA, 0...10V) or CANopen®-fieldbus
  • Approval according to 94/9/EG for equipment group II (non-mining products), category 2G for zones 1 and 2 (gases).
    Other zones on request
  • Approved by TÜV Süddeutschland for the use in theatre and stage design

Application

Load pins are suited to mounting in deviation rolls, fork heads and rolling bearings. Due to their structural shape load pins fit into the constructions directly replacing on existing bolt.

ATEX/IECEx (Option)
Only equipment and protective systems with the corresponding certification and markings are to be put into operation in potentially explosive areas. Our force transducers with a thin-film measuring cell and integrated amplifier now have approval according to directive 94/9/EC in equipment group II (non-mining products), category 2G for zones 1 and 2 (gases). Other zones on request.

Signal jump (Option)
Safety electronics have been developed especially for theatre and stage applications. With a signal jump, a function test is carried out in an interval of 24 hours in order to monitor the safe function of the force transducer.
