WYCKOFF, N.J., March 30, 2010 — The SS6000 series from Sherborne Sensors is a range of shear strain gauge load cells that directly integrate with new or existing roll bearing systems for high-precision force measurements in web tension applications.
The design incorporates precision transducer quality bonded strain gauges as its primary transduction element to ensure reliability and to facilitate integration with closed-loop tension control systems. The transducers are compensated for the effects of temperature on zero output and sensitivity, with minimal deflection and high resonant frequency, ensuring rapid response to tension changes.
Sensors are machined from stainless steel for high resistance to shock, overload and corrosion, and are offered in ranges from ±2000 to ±5000 kg, with 2 mV/V output. Their cylindrical end shape allows bearings to be mounted directly to the load cell.
The company can manufacture custom load cells to meet specific application and conformance requirements, including enhanced measurement capabilities, wider temperature ranges and specialty connectors. The sensors perform precision web tension control measurements, including slitting, coating, laminating and embossing, and can be used in winding machinery control applications.
