Bestech Australia presents the 6918/6998 universal load cell from BCM Sensors.
These load cells are manufactured based on advanced metal foil strain gauge technology.
The load cells are made from either alloy steel (6918) with a nickel plated treatment or stainless steel (6998).
The S-type load cell can measure both tension and compression with different capacities ranging from 25kg to 30 tonnes.
These force transducers are widely used in hanging scales and hopper scales, or where tension and compression forces in a line need to be measured.
The load cell has a very high accuracy of 0.02% FS with good stability. The compensated temperature range is -10 to 40°C, and there is a safe overload limit of 150% FS. The load cell gives mV/V output.
These load cells feature a simple construction and offer easy installation as well as replacement.
The unit is protected to a grade of IP66 or IP67, depending on the user’s needs. The optional protection grade of IP68 is also available for harsher industrial conditions.
Load cells for different applications and capacities are available from the company.
