Rod end load cell

BROSA rod end load cells are compactly designed and withstand extreme loads due to the use of high strength steel. Thanks to the design variants with internal and external threads for tensile and compressive forces and matching joint heads, the sensor is extremely versatile. For applications in the harshest environmental conditions, BROSA rod end load cells are ideally suited due to proven strain gauge technology and sophisticated amplifiers with reliable and accurate measuring results.

There are various applications in which our rod end load cells are used:

  • Mobile harbor cranes
  • Mobile cranes
  • Torque supports
  • Test systems
  • Suspensions
  • Shelf storage systems

By default, our rod end load cells offer additional features in addition to a customized design:

  • Integrated amplifier (4-20mA, CANopen, optional CANopen Safety, PROFINET, optional PROFINET PROFIsafe)
  • Design capable of sustained operation
  • Temperature compensated from -40 ... + 80 °C 
  • High EMC resistance of 200 V/m 
  • No zero drift, i.e. no re-calibration required 
  • Consistent accuracy over the entire temperature range
  • Design for tensile and / or compressive forces
  • Load limit 150% and breaking load 300% of the nominal load
  • Security classification PL c / SIL 1
  • Protection class IP66 / IP67 in accordance with DIN EN 60529
  • Calibration of reproduced installation situation including test report

As an option, our sensors also offer the following advantages:

  • Increased border and breaking load, for example 300/500%
  • Temperature compensated to + 160 °C
  • Fault insensitive to magnetic fields up to 300 mT
  • Redundant design
  • Performance Level d (e) in accordance with ISO 13849
  • SIL 2 (SIL 3) in accordance with IEC 61508
  • ATEX Ex i
  • IECEx certification
  • Protection class IP69
  • External amplifiers
  • Customized connections (cables and connectors)
