OBU Single Point - Compression Load Cell

OBU Single Point - Compression Load Cell

Quick Overview

The OBU series of loadcells are single point load cells designed for applications where the point of application of the load or force may vary. Single point load cells are primarily designed for the platform type weighing scales where applications are diverse, ranging from weighing a single diamond to a heavy canister of nitrogen gas. Other applications include low range tensile test machines, robotics and web tension measurement. Load cells are available with a range of 0-500 grams up to 0-1,000Kg and cover platforms measuring anywhere from 80mm square to 600mm square using just a single load cell. The load cells provide a 2mV/V output but can be supplied with suitable inline amplifiers to provide a calibrated 4-20mA output. ATEX versions are available.

Product Description

The OBU series of moment insensitive single point load cells were primarily engineered for use and integration within industrial and laboratory scales, they are however equally suited for use in a wide range of force measurement applications.

The design of the OBU accompanied by the volume manufacturing techniques employed to build this series of load cells makes it an ideal solution for applications where low forces are to be measured within a tight budget. 

Environmental sealing to IP65 (IP67 optional) gives the series added protection when in use in damp or wet environments, whilst overload stops are easily employed to give added mechanical protection.

The OBU is constructed from anodised aluminium alloy, giving it a low self weight. The OBUC & OBUH are provided with sense wires for compensation of voltage drops along the load cell cable.
