PCB® Model 1621-02A S-Type Load Cell sensor is designed for precision measurement in multi-cycle, high repetition automotive component and system test applications. Housed in stainless steel, this extremely rugged sensor offers a measurement range of 1,000 lb (4.45 kN); 500% full scale overload protection in both compression and tension; and a 6pin PT style connector. With an operating temperature range from -65 to +200 °F (-54 to +93 °C) and overall accuracy of 0.07%, this sensor is engineered to ensure high repeatability and over-range protection, and is an extremely cost-effective way to measure both compression and tension forces. The detachable cable ensures easy set-up and minimizes down time due to damaged cables, and the available mounting accessories make this a versatile sensor for any test environment. As with all PCB® instrumentation, these sensors are complemented with toll-free applications assistance, 24-hour customer service, and are backed by a no-risk policy that guarantees total customer satisfaction or your money refunded.
