PCB Piezotronics Announces New Dual Bridge Strain Gage Load Cells for Aircraft Structural Testing
Depew, NY, USA - June 22, 2009 - PCB Piezotronics, Inc., introduces a broad range of Strain Gage Dual Bridge Load Cells specifically for airframe structural test applications. PCB® Series 1200 includes a dual output feature that offers sensor redundancy and the ability to provide control feedback from one sensor while the other is used for data acquisition. These load cells are available in multiple ranges and have an A2LA accredited calibration to ISO 17025 in both tension and compression directions. Additional features include low deflection, high accuracy and repeatability, thermal compensation and barometric compensation.
PCB® Load Cells are available with capacities ranging from 500 lb to 50,000 lb (2.2 kN to 220 kN). Fatigue rated styles are also available and guaranteed for 100 million fully-reversed cycles. In addition to dual bridge load cells for airframe structural test, other load cells are available including low profile, rod end, S-beam, and pedal effort for applications such as weighing, material testing, press monitoring, process automation, rocket thrust, component testing, and automotive durability or drivability.
