Bestech Australia offers two new miniature load cells for precise
tension and compression force measurements being carried out in limited spaces.
Model 8431 and 8432 load cells feature a special connection cable, convenient
load application via threaded pins with external winding, and small dimensions,
making them especially suitable for machine or tool manufacturing, handling
gear, and laboratory applications.
The new precision load cells also incorporate features typically seen in
larger load cells such as hermetically sealed construction, overload protection
and boring for pressure compensation when applied under vacuum.
Key features of the new miniature load cells include
small dimensions; accurate measurement of tension and compression forces; temperature
compensation from -55¡C up to 200¡C; minimum lateral sensitivity due to
supporting membranes; measurement accuracy from 0.2% F.S.; measurement ranges
from 0 … 2.5 N to 0 … 100 kN; and overload protection for tension and
