F310 Axial Force And Torque Transducer

Geometry: Monocoque strain structure with no moving parts.

The F310 depicted measures force and torque in the same axis with minimal cross talk providing user friendly outputs for direct measurement without mathematical manipulation.

Each channel may be calibrated bi-directionally. The version of the transducer depicted was developed for an OEM producing texture analyser machines (rheometers) for use in the food process industry.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Variants may include different combinations of force and moment axis e.g. FxMz, FyMx, FzMy etc.

Additional information on specifying a multi-axis loadcell can be found in Engineering Sheet E015.

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

Ordering Codes

See the loadcell ordering code sheet for more details. Add range in the required force units.

Most F310 loadcells are manufactured to special requirements and are given an F310-Zxxxx number.

Notes

  1. AL = Applied load.
  2. RL = Rated load.
  3. Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.
  4. Values apply to force and moment in all load combinations.
  5. Extraneous forces or torques other than those calibrated may create moment errors.

Connections

The F310 is fitted with 2 metres of PVC insulated 9 core screened cable type 7-1-9C. The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.
