Cardinal Tension, Stainless Steel

Cardinal’s American-made stainless steel tension load cells are ideally suited for single or multiple load cell tension applications. Simplicity of design permits their use in a wide variety of configurations. The ZX250, 500 and 1000 load cells are potted with a proprietary waterproof sealant that remains flexible over the life of the load cell and protects the load cell strain gages over a broad temperature range. Load cells ZX-2500 and up have the gage cavity sealed by a welded stainless steel cup. Metric threads are available on most models. NTEP legal-for-trade certified. Available capacities range from 250 lb / 113 kg to 20,000 lb / 9072 kg.
