Tension measurement under water.
When approached by one of our customers to design
a load cell for under water tension measurement,
we looked at our core range of products and decided
the DDE style load cell with male threads on each end
of the load cell would be best suited for the customer,
but this model as standard is only rated to IP65.
With a small, quick and cost effective re-design we changed the
construction to Stainless Steel with two halfs locking together
with a seal. Internally it was further protected by back filling with
an inert water proof gel. The electrical termination is a tough IP68
multicore cable that connected through an IP68 cable gland, to
complete to fully submersible sealing.
By modifying an existing product we were able to keep the cost
and delivery time down to suit our customers needs, whilst
displaying our capability to modify or design a product quickly
