The F321 gear shift loadcell measures gear lever forces required to achieve gear selection.

An ergonomically designed gear knob senses the force from a human hand or a mechanical actuator. The three axis force components are represented by three pure loadcell output signals. The gear shift loadcell is supplied calibrated and ready to use, no in-situ calibration or mathematical computation is required.

Easy fitment is achieved with mechanical axis referencing and simple attachment to a male thread or adapter.

The gear shift loadcell, like all our automotive products, can be produced for environmental test chamber temperature requirements of -40 to 80°C.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Please consult our engineering department.

Notes

  • AL = Applied load.
  • RL = Rated load.
  • Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.
  • Values apply to all axes unless otherwise specified.

Connections

The F321 is fitted with 2 metres of PVC insulated 12 core screened cable type 7-1-12C. The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.
