Product information "S-Type load cell S40S"

The S-type load cell S40S was designed specifically for measuring smaller tensile and pressure forces. A central coil in the upper and lower part of the load cell ensures an optimal transmission of force in the tensile and pressure direction.
The S-type load cell is made of stainless steel and is characterized by high accuracy and linearity.
The load cell S40S gives extremely accurate reproducible results, over a long term even in harsh industrial environments.
The load cell is potted and meets the requirements of protection class IP65. By simple integration options and a good dynamic behavior, these load cells are often offered as force transducers and calibrated in Newtons.
