The series RDE900 load cells are rod-end configurations for in-line tension force applications. Constructed of all welded stainless steel, these bonded foil strain gauged force sensors provide reliable performance for demanding applications.

Series RDE900 Load Cell Overview

Customers can specify a variety of male/female versions for the threaded ends. Additional design features include shock and vibration protection. Customers can also specify optional internal amplifiers for analog (current and voltage) or digital outputs (RS232, RS485, CANbus) for these rod-end tension load cells.

Due to the broad range of full scale capacities, the series RDE900 load cells are used in many in-line tension applications which include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Wire-line tension
  • Chain/cable/rope testing
  • Mechanical component testing

Each series RDE900 load cell is shipped with a 5-point calibration record traceable to NIST as standard. (See series RDE900 Shackle for tongue shackle version)
