All standard ranges are manufactured in stainless steel.
Geometry: Low profile axial loadcell for use in force measurements in tension and compression.
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 F252 is ideal for engineering force measurements particularly in applications where there is a limit on the height of the loadcell. It can be used for test machines and a wide range of general industrial applications.
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.

- AL = Applied load.
- RL = Rated load.
- Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.
- The load must be applied directly through the central loading axis.
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.
