Tension and Compression Load Cell CTS01

The CTS01 stainless steel load cell has been designed to accurately measure small dynamic and static forces from 10 kN. Due to the applied design principle, the measurement errors remain negligible even with strongly eccentric forces.

Technical Data

Nominal force [kN]10, 20 kN
max. operating force [% Fnom]160 %
Absolute max. force [% Fnom)1000 %
Combined error0,5 %
max. bridge supply voltage10 V DC

Scope of Supply

Tension and compression load cell in flat design with 5 m cable (PVC) and connection T: cable gland, straight

Further connection variant:
