F241 Axial Compensated Loadcell

Geometry: Flexure strain assembly in cylindrical housing, open or weather sealed with end internal fixing. For universal use in tension and compression, with compensation for off axis load inputs.

The F241 is ideally suited to low range engineering force measurements and process weighing. When precision and easy installation are required various configurations allow the loadcell to be used in both tensile and compressive applications.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Versions can be manufactured for higher temperature operation. Please consult our engineering department.

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.
F241CF00H0 Compression, unrationalised F241CF00HN Compression, rationalised
F241TF00H0 Tension, unrationalised F241TF00HN Tension, rationalised
F241UF00H0 Bi-directional, unrationalised F241UF00HN Bi-directional, rationalised
Change the C to a D for compression with thread fitting.
If the overload stop option is required add this to the description.

  1. AL = Applied load.
  2. RL = Rated load.
  3. Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.


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.
