Replacements for FMS CA Series Load Cells

DFE manufactures reliable, high-performance alternatives to FMS CA series load cells that are backed by an industry-leading 5 year warranty.

Model C Series tension transducers are the industry standard in semiconductor strain gage web tension load cells. Available in five mounting styles: Screw, Flange, Pillow-Block, Piloted-Flange and Through-Frame. These rugged and refined transducers can be configured to accommodate both live or dead shaft idler rolls and are available in three cartridge sizes that provide a wide range of load ratings from 10 to 800 lbs. All DFE load cells are backed by a 5 year warranty.

Compared to foil gage, DFE's semiconductor strain gage transducers provide superior signal output performance and are great alternatives to FMS CA series load cells in the following configurations:

Recommended Amplifiers / Signal Conditioners

TA1 TrueTension™ Amplifier
TA500 EtherNet/IP™ Tension Amplifier

Notes:
1. A DFE amplifier / signal conditioner is required
2. Dimensions may require modification to frame through-hole diameter, flange bolt circle or PB bracket hole span

CAPABILITIES
• Dual cantilevered beam for high accuracy
• Load ratings from 10 – 800 lbs (45 – 3560N)
• High overload capacity – up to 2,500 lbs (11,125N)
• Available with extended range output (XR) for measuring lower minimum tensions
• Paired with a DFE amplifier, 0-10 VDC, 4-20 mA and Ethernet proportional signal outputs are available

FEATURES & BENEFITS
5 year tension-free warranty
• Highly accurate and reliable semiconductor strain gage technology
• Eliminates guess work and allows for the measurement of precise tension in control and monitoring applications
• Helps reduce or eliminate web breakage, stretching, registration and length problems
• Sealed from dust and moisture; seals are recessed, blocking access from potential damage
• Dual cantilever beam provides high strength and accuracy even at low tension
• Temperature compensated for stable output
• CE marked – meets European low voltage (73/23/EEC) and EMC (89/336/EEC) directives
• Stainless steel and aluminum construction for excellent corrosion resistance
• All mounting styles can be rotated to any position for precise orientation
• Coupling articulation accommodates changes in idler shaft angle and length caused by deflection and temperature variations
• Idler shaft can be removed from transducer without removing transducer from machine on the live (L) split-cap and dead (D) shaft versions
