  1. Pedal Load Cell

    Pedal Load Cell

    Model: FN2114
    • Ranges 200 to 2500 N (40 to 500 Lbf)
    • Aluminium body
    • Cable gland output
    • Accuracy 1% regardless force application point

    Pedal Load Cell

    The FN2114 load cell has been developed for pedal load testing. Its size allows the sensor to be easily installed on the pedals of any vehicle or a fatigue/endurance test bench.

    Since the forces to be investigated on the brake, clutch or accelerometer pedals are different, and vary from a small car to a heavy goods vehicle, TE CONNECTIVITY offers different measurement ranges as standard.

    With an internal mechanical decoupling system, accuracy is 1% F.S., regardless of the point of force application. Integrated amplifier for high level output is optionally available for all ranges.
    A similar pedal load cells with thicker dimension exists as model FN2570.

    With many years of experience as a designer and manufacturer of sensors, TE CONNECTIVITY often works with customers to design or customize sensors for specific uses and testing environments.

  3. Miniature Load Cell

    Miniature Load Cell

    Model: ELHS
    • Ranges from 1kN to 50kN (200 lbf to 10,000 lbf)
    • Semi-conductor strain gauges bridge
    • Low deflection, low mass

    Miniature Load Cell

    The ELHS load cell is a compact package able to fit into many applications where others cannot. 

    The low noise Wheatstone bridge consists of piezoresistive strain gages which provide 200 mV of typical full scale output with a compact design, an extreme stiffness and superior resolution. The ELHS is provided with either SAE or metric threads for tension and compression applications.

    Care should be exercised to isolate your ELHS from off-axis loads. The ELHS is a Poisson column design providing low full scale input deflection and superior resolution. Designed specifically to provide high resolution and low deflection. 

    The ELHS can be configured with a variety of options to fine tune the instrument to your application: select from several standard compensated temperature ranges, input voltages, lead lengths or specify entirely unique combinations of these options.

  8. Miniature Load Cell

    Miniature Load Cell

    Model: XFTC3000
    • Ranges 0-2N to 0-2kN [0.4 lbf to 400 lbf]
    • High Stiffness
    • Threaded Male Mechanical Fitting
    • Linearity < 0.5% FS

    Miniature Load Cell

    The XFTC300 series has been specifically developed to measure tension and/or compression in static and dynamic applications. The miniature size and light weight facilitate testing where these conditions are necessary. 

    The sensing element is fitted with a fully temperature compensated Wheatstone bridge equipped with high stability micro-machined silicon strain gauges. The use of silicon strain gauges optimizes the load cell’s performance at low ranges and frequencies.

    For sensors with a range of between 2 and 2KN, a high-level output model is available. With two male threads, the XFTC300 is easily installed in industrial or OEM applications. A strain relief spring strengthens the cable output.
