F304 Brake Pedal Force Loadcell

The F304 is a compact, low profile loadcell for measuring brake pedal application forces. The loadcell is robust in construction with a maximum force range of 2500N (250kgf). Its multi-hole fixing allows simple attachment to any shape pedal using screws or cable ties. The low profile stainless steel design maintains the brake pedals ergonomic geometry.

Additional information can be found in Engineering Sheet E030. If you require other force ranges the F322 or F323 may be suitable.

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.

The standard range is manufactured in stainless steel.


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


The loadcell is fitted with 2 metres of flexible polyurethane jacketed 4 core screened cable.

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

The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.
