Manufacturing loadcells since 1972
F245 Axial Compensated Loadcell
Standard Ranges 100, 200, 400 and 800N (10 to 80kgf)
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 F245 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.

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.
