Tension Load Cells | Tension Force Sensors | Tension Measurement

This section illustrates our range of tension load cells and tension force sensors designed for the measurement of tensile load, weight and force.  Typical applications include tensile testing, materials research, mooring force measurement, rope and wire tension measurement, aerospace process monitoring and suspended hopper weighing.

Our selection of tension load cells offer ranges from as low as 0-25 grams right up to 0-1500 tonnes, with non-standard ranges available on request.  We can offer you a range of tension load cell styles including s-beams, canisters, columns, low profile, in-line lifting links and load pins, so you can be assured you will find a tension load cell that suits your needs.  Plus,, we also specialise in the design and manufacture of customised or bespoke versions to suit your specific application if a standard sensor doesn’t fit the bill.  Call or email our technical sales team to discuss your requirements or read more about our custom load cell design services.

All tension load cell models can be supplied with analogue or digital instrumentation including amplifiers and signal conditioners, signal digitisers, displays and indicators and wireless radio telemetry equipment, for a complete tension measurement system.  Calibration traceable to UKAS standards is available on all tension load cells and systems.

Our tension load cells and tension force sensors can be supplied with installation accessories including rod end bearings, clevises, shackles, mounting bases or custom designed fixtures, to ensure a fast and simple installation.
