5550 Stub Axle Load Cell

Load capacity from 10 to 50kN

• Range 10 to 50kN
• Stainless steel construction.
• Rugged and easily employed
• Sealed to IP67


The 5550 stub axle load cell has full environmental protection and is built for rugged applications. The load cell is constructed from high strength stainless steel. A complete range covers the load capacities from 10 to 50kN. Each load cell can be designed to allow transverse loading while measuring in the active plain. The load cell is built to the highest commercial standards that include temperature compensation over a wide temperature range.

Active Load provides complete transducer solution designing and manufacturing strain gauge transducers.

Strain gauge transducers are designed to be Load Cells, Force Sensors, Torque Sensors, Pressure Transducers and any other strain related product.

Active Load will incorporate the strain gauge cells with a strain gauge amplifier to achieve an enhanced signal. Many of our strain gauge load cells are designed to be in the form of load monitoring pins to measure rope tension. Other forms taken are as load monitoring links and compressive load cell.
