F214 Loadstud

Geometry: Axial strain rod in weather sealed case, with external fixing threads. For use in tension or compression.

With bi-directional versions there is a small difference between the output signal for compression and tension. All standard bi-directional loadcells are calibrated in both modes and the output for each direction is stated on the test / calibration certificate.

The F214 is ideally suited to engineering force measurements, particularly with push pull actuator / linkage arrangements where self alignment and axial force transmission is achieved by hardware design.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Versions can be manufactured for fully compensated operation up to +250°C. Please consult our engineering department.

Details of our other loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.

Notes

  1. AL = Applied load.
  2. RL = Rated load.
  3. Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.
  4. The load must be applied directly through the central loading axis.

Connections

The loadcell is fitted with 2 metres of PVC insulated 4 core screened cable type 7-2-4C.

Excitation + = Red, Excitation - = Blue, Signal + = Yellow, Signal - = Green, Screen = Orange.

Reverse the signal connections to obtain a positive signal in tension mode. The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.

When this loadcell is rationalised the resistors are housed in a capsule located in the loadcell cable 100mm from the free end. Capsule dimensions are Ø10mm by 57mm.
