All standard ranges are manufactured in stainless steel.

Geometry: Axial strain cylinder in a weather sealed stainless steel case, with end internal fixing threads. For use in tension and compression loaded in line with the axis.

With bi-directional versions there is a small difference between the output signal for compression and tension. All standard bi-directional loadcells are calibrated in both modes and the output for each direction is stated on the test / calibration certificate.

The F204 is ideally suited to bi-directional engineering force measurements. They are used extensively within the automotive industry for testing of auto components. Standard rod end bearings are available for this product. If you require better performance than the F204 the F317 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.

Notes

  • AL = Applied load.
  • RL = Rated load.
  • Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.
  • 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.

Reverse the signal connections to obtain a positive signal in tension mode. The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.
