MAGPOWR LC-500G Low Tension Load Cells

  • Full Wheatstone bridge strain gauge configuration for reliable operation
  • 360 degree overload protection
  • Mounts easily into almost any single strand application

Lightweight single strand applications including wire, fiber optics and filament textiles face the requirements of tension measurement. For various reasons, lighter, thinner, finer materials are now demanded, and manufacturers require tension controls that can help facilitate those demands.

MAGPOWR’s Low Tension Load Cells (LC-500G & LC-500GS1) have full wheatstone bridge strain gage configurations, and the meet the same industry leading specifications as all other MAGPOWR load cells. The LC-500G, designed to mount easily into almost any single strand installation, also employs 360 degrees of overload protection preventing the need for recalibration in the event of overload situations. For applications requiring special pulleys, the LC-500GS1 is available with provisions for a customer-supplied pulley.
