LOADLINK DIGITAL DYNAMOMETER TENSION LOAD CELLS
The original digital dynamometer tension load cell has been serving the load testing and force or weight measurement industries since 1979. Decades of development into this product include many standout features, such as the unique strain gauging method that helps compensate for wire rope torque when our load cell is loaded.
These load-monitoring systems are available in telemetry wireless (RLP), self-indicating (on product electronic display, LLP) and cabled non-indicating (WLP) versions. Ruggedly built and highly accurate load link style load cell dynamometers allow for force and load monitoring across a broad range of industries and applications.
