ITCA Stainless Steel Tension and Compression Load Cell

ITCA Stainless Steel Tension and Compression Load Cell

The ITCA series load cell is ideal for measuring both tensile and compressive forces. The standard metric threads at each end of the load cell are designed to accept standard spherical seating rod-end bearings.

There is great flexibility in the ITCA design, allowing us to offer special sizes to meet specific application requirements, or different end thread sizes and combinations. There are versions available with male threads at each end, or male threads at one end and female at the other. We are also happy to supply any of the ITCA series with imperial thread sizes.

The ITCA series can be supplied as shown in this datasheet or can be modified to meet a particular application requirement. We are always pleased to discuss any special requirements that can be accommodated.

The ITCA series can be supplied on its own or combined with our extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
