Honeywell Sensing & Control S-Beam Tension and Compression Load Cells

Honeywell is pleased to introduce its S-Beam Tension and Compression Load Cells, Models 151/152, designed to provide a reliable and stable force sensor with bi-directional (tension and compression) calibration to meet essential product development, testing and verification needs.

Material and component testing is important to most manufacturers, from a steel maker ensuring the mechanical strength and property of the metal, to a food and beverage manufacturer ensuring the texture of food and strength of packaging. Force testing through the use of load cells in development and production enables the manufacturer to provide consistent quality and performance of products for forces necessary to meet the specification/functional property. The purpose of this testing is to collect force data versus time and displacement of the test specimen.

Models 151/152 combine a one-piece, compact structure with enhanced precision and rigorous testing to form a reliable and durable tension and compression force transducer. Higher capacity Models 151 (250 N to 50K N) are made with nickel-plated alloy steel. Lower capacity Models 152 (50 N and 100 N) are constructed from aluminum.
