Submersible load cell FN4074 manufactured by FGP is designed to measure the tension on submarine mooring lines.
How to measure the tension on submarine mooring lines? How do underwater cables react to water flow? The submersible load cell FN4074 has been expressly designed by FGP Sensors’ specialist engineers to solve these problems.
The mechanical design of the submersible load cell FN4074 enables easy attachment of the load cell to the cable material and fixing adapted to underwater conditions. The submersible load cell FN4074 allows for independent operation of this load cell in total immersion.
These are a few characteristics which distinguish the submersible load cell FN4074 from standard models.
The submersible load cell FN4074 is made to measure tension loads up to 100 kN, with an accuracy (linearity and hysteresis) of 0.5% full scale. The sensor is made entirely out of stainless steel and offers an IP68 level of protection at 100 bar.
Powered by rechargeable batteries and integrated signal-conditioning electronics, the sensor provides a direct high level signal of 4 Vdc full scale. Due to its autonomy, it is possible to observe cable tension during a full 24-hour period in an underwater environment.
Some important features of the submersible load cell FN4074 are:
- Range full scale: 100 kN
- Linearity and hysteresis: <±0,5% FS
- Safe over-range: 2 x FS
- Signal output F.S: 0.5 to 4.5 Vdc
- Excitation: Internal rechargeable battery (24 hour operation)
- Protection: IP68 – 100 Bar
The underwater load cell FN4074 is available in Australia and New Zealand from Bestech Australia.
