fSENS F73x1

Robust load cells and tension links

Robust force sensors for your mobile machines

The fSENS F73x1 load cells and tension links are available in standard and special versions. The robust sensors directly measure both static and dynamic tensile forces. Being made of stainless steel, they easily withstand extreme stresses inside your machines and are also excellently suited for use in harsh environments. 


At a glance

  • Impressive measurement accuracy
  • Measurement of static and dynamic forces
  • From single digits to thousands of kN

Product Description

The robust, compact design of all fSENS load cells and tension links ensures a long service life. They also boast outstanding linearity and precision (≤ +1%). Your can choose either normal analog current or voltage outputs (4...20 mA and 0...10 V DC) or a digital output (CANopen). Redundant versions are also available.

We supply both standard and customized versions to meet your particular needs with regard to measurement ranges and geometries.
