Tension links are designed for static and dynamic measurement tasks in the direct flux of force. As a load-bearing component in existing constructions, they determine the tension forces in a wide scope of applications.
Tension links of this series are often used in hoist and crane systems as torque support or rope fix point for load measurements. Further application areas are special machine constructions, e. g. in polymer processing machines. Appropriate technical and regional approvals are available as an option.
The tension links of the series F7301 are either made of high-strength, corrosion-resistant stainless steel 1.4542 or robust fine-grained steel with surface protection. Due to their properties, these materials are particularly suitable for the applications of tension links. Besides the standard active current and voltage outputs (4 ... 20 mA / 0 ... 10 V), digital outputs (CANopen®) are available as output signals. Redundant output signals are possible.
These force transducers are a part of our certified product ELMS1 overload protection (DIN EN ISO 13849-1 with PL d/ Kat. 3 and SIL 2).
