  • Description

    The 8524 precision tension & compression load cell is a versatile sensor for highly accurate load measurements in diverse applications. Optimum measurement quality is achieved with the load cell mounted on a flat, hard and polished contact surface. This requirement does not apply to small measurement ranges of up to 0 ... 2 kN because three knife-edge bearings ensure that the sensor is seated securely. Off-center forces, bending moments and torques of less than 5% of the rated load will not impair the sensor‘s measurement quality. Our brochure „Load Cells“ explains how you can design parasitic loads out of your mechanical system.

    Through-holes in the outer flange are used for fastening the 8524 sensor to the system structure. The load is applied via the central blind threaded hole or optionally via a load button. Alternatively, a pull plate and even rod end bearings, if desired, can be attached to the sensor for equally easy measurement of purely tensile loads, for instance in Bowden cables or chains. The 8524 sensor is designed to measure static, quasi-static and dynamic compressive and/or tensile loads.

    Inside the sensor is an elastic membrane, on which are applied strain gages connected in a full Wheatstone bridge. If a tensile or compressive load is applied to the sensor, the ohmic resistance of the measuring bridge changes and detunes the output signal in proportion to the measured load in mV/V.
