Sherborne Sensors debuts fully customizable Bearing Load Cells for tension control applications

Sherborne Sensors (www.sherbornesensors.com), a global leader in the design, development and manufacture of inclinometers, accelerometers, force transducers, load cells, rotary encoders, instrumentation and accessories for industrial, military and aerospace customers, has introduced the SS6000 series, a range of fully customizable shear strain gauge (gage) load cells, designed to directly integrate with new or existing roll bearing systems, for high-precision force measurements within demanding web tension applications.

The design of the SS6000 series incorporates precision transducer quality bonded strain gauges as its primary transduction element, to ensure high-reliability under demanding conditions, as well as to facilitate easy integration with closed loop tension control systems. The transducers are fully 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 ±2,000 to ±5,000 kg (4,400 to 11,000 lbf), with 2 mV/V output. The cylindrical end shape of the SS6000 series allows bearings to be mounted direct to the load cell.

With extensive in-house applications engineering and manufacturing expertise, Sherborne Sensors can also design and manufacture custom load cells to meet specific application and conformance requirements, including enhanced measurement capabilities, wider temperature ranges, and specialty connectors.

The SS6000 series is ideal for precision web tension control measurements, including slitting, coating, laminating and embossing processes, as well as winding machinery control applications. All SS6000 series load cells are 100% tested and calibrated at the factory prior to shipment, and are accompanied by a two-year comprehensive warranty. The product is also included under the new Sherborne Sensors Guaranteed On-Time Delivery program.
