The model C*transducer is the industry standard in strain-gauge based web tension transducers (sometimes called 'load cells'). Available in three frame sizes and both live-shaft and dead-shaft versions. Dead-shaft Model C Transducers are sealed to protect the inside from dust and water. Recessed seals are protected from damage. Choose from five available mounting styles: "S" (screw mount), "FL" (flange mount), "PB" (pillow block mount), "PFL" (piloted flange mount), "TF" (through-frame mount). These rugged, time-proven transducers have many other features. Download the Model C Tension Transducer Data Sheet for complete details.
Tension Transducers Capabilities
Dual cantilevered beam for high accuracy
Load ratings from 10 - 800 lbs (45 - 3560N)
High Overload capacity to 2,500 lbs (11,125N)
Available with extended range output (XR) for measuring lower minimum tensions
When utilized with the iAmp inline amplifier, a 0-10Vdc output is available
DFE controllers and indicators are available with a Dual Calibration feature for accepting calibration parameters from two sets of tension transducers, allowing users a wider range of tension measurement.
* The 'C' in model C stands for convertible. When DFE builds one of these transducers, it can be finalized as a dead-shaft style transducer, with a non-rotatable coupling, or as a live-shaft style transducer, with a rotatable shaft coupling.
