F327 Canister Loadcell

The F327 is a robust canister loadcell that is ideally suited to compression force measurement applications in harsh conditions. The loadcell is deliberately over engineered to achieve a low contact surface pressure under high loading.

Smaller column type loadcells, such as the F218, are available and we can cover the F327 load ranges with smaller designs. 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 16-2-4C or a 4 pin Binder 723 series chassis plug.

Excitation + = Red or pin 1, Excitation - = Blue or pin 2, Signal + = Yellow or pin 3, Signal - = Green or pin 4, Screen = Orange.

The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.
