FUTEK offices will be closed on Monday, May 29th, in observance of Memorial Day.
LTH Series is a Donut Load Cell (aka Thru Hole load Cell) is a variation of a low profile compression load cell and features a compact, smooth thru-hole design for use in applications which require the load structure to pass thru the sensor.
Typical applications include:
Fig 1: Donut Load Cell - Force Washer / Bolt Fastening Application / Clamping Force.
Offered in either tension or tension / compression models, measuring load ranges from 5lb to 50,000 lbs. The standard sensor output is mV/V. Amplified output available via in-line amplifiers, such as FUTEK Signal Conditioners (link).
The standard LTH Through Hole Load Cell model has a very robust construction available in 17-4 Stainless Steel, with an I.D. range of 1/8” to 3/8” and a 10 feet long 29 AWG 4 conductor shielded Teflon cable. You will also find Thru-Hole Load Cell and donut load cells for external matched output readily available.
If you need special modifications or a complete customized sensor design, please don’t hesitate to contact FUTEK.
