The Series CNR960 and CNR96XX are high capacity and high accuracy tension/compression load cells specifically designed to resist the affects of extraneous bending and off-axis loading. Ideal for test and measurement applications requiring long fatigue life, this particularly robust canister design is rated in excess of 100 million fully reversed cycles at full scale.

Both units cover ranges from 25,000 to 2,000,000 lbf. The CNR960 provides a 2mV/V full scale output (nom) and the amplified CNR96XX provides analog or digital output including RS-232, RS485, MODbus, and CANbus. Standard operating temperature is from -65°to +250°F, compensated from 70°to 170°F. Static accuracy specs include ±0.2% linearity, ±0.2% hysteresis, and repeatability of ±0.05% (FSO).

Stellar Technology Announces Series RDE905 Load Cells

STI Tension and Compression Load Cell
STI Series RDE905 Tension and Compression,
Rod-End Load Cell

Stellar Technology’s Series RDE905 load cells are rod-end configurations for both in-line compression and in-line tension force applications. Standard accuracy is 0.25% FS and the units are available in ranges from 2,500 to 5,000lbf. The RDE905 features shock and vibration protection and the robust design is able to withstand extreme side, bending, and torque loads of up to 20% of full scale.

Constructed of all-welded stainless steel, these bonded foil, strain-gage force sensors are compact in size and provide reliable performance for demanding applications. Standard operating temperature is -65°to 250°F with -320°to 400°F available as an option.
