    Due to their compact design and construction, these tensionpressure load
    cells can be operated without any problems in laboratories as well as
    in industrial environments. Made of corrosion-resistant steel, these
    load cells can be integrated easily in existing structures, due to their
    standardized nominal characteristic value and simple assembly. Model
    8524 can be used to measure static, semi-static and dynamic tension and
    compression forces depending on the measurement task.

    Areas of application include:

    1. Measurement of press-in and insertion forces

    2. Measurement of spring forces

    3. Measurement of shearing and cutting forces

    4. Force measurement and control during assembly

    5. Measurement of pressure on drilling machines

    load-centering plate mounted on the load cell can be used to measure
    joint lugs, tension forces in ropes, chains, etc. (refer to page 4:
    load-centering plate).



    bending plate inside the load cell is equipped with strain gauges
    which, on the exertion of a force, supply a bridgeoutput voltage
    directly proportional to the measurement variable. The center axis of
    the tension/compression load cells incorporates a continuous thread
    through which the measurement force is applied free from lateral or
    torsion force either using a load application button or an
    applicationspecific adapter part. Starting at a measurement range of 0
    ... 5 kN, the measurement accuracy is ideal if the load cell has been
    mounted on a level, hard and polished base. This condition is not
    necessary for small measurement ranges of 0 ... 2 kN due to 3 special
    knife-edge bearings (see dimensional drawing 1).

    measures should be taken to avoid exposing the load cell to lateral
    forces (for instance, mounting on movable bearings, levers held by
    roller bearings). Attachment via the clearance bore holes integrated in
    the external ring allows simple handling of the sensor.

    stop serves as overload protection against damages caused by
    impermissible high compression forces (option up to measurement range 0
    ... 20 kN). Lateral forces of up to 5 % nominal strength only have
    little influence.
