Tension Links are very robust force sensors that are mainly usedinmechanicalengineeringapplicationsbutalso frequently in cranes and hoists. The tensile forces can be introduced moment-free into the sensor via the integrated spherical bearings over a fixed centre distance. Placed directly in the force flow and under the effect of the introduced tensile force, the sensor aligns itself optimally and thus achieves high accuracies in load measurement. The integrated amplifier electronics provide a standard current signal of 4…20 mA that is easy to evaluate, very reliable and insensitive to interference. Optionally, the Tension Link ZML is also available with a (redundant) 2-channel output signal. Genauigkeit: 0,2 %v.E.
