KM1506 K 5KN

5 kN (1124 lb.) capacity. The load cell series KM1506 has a robust construction with protection class IP65. Maximum operating force up to 200% rated capacity. The force is introduced via the M10 internal thread. These force sensors are ideal for tensile forces. The DMS measuring principle (Wheatstone DMS full bridge) for these force transducers has proven itself over decades and guarantees a long service life. The force sensors are offered without integrated amplifier electronics, but can be combined with external measuring amplifiers and displays. For load cells with integrated signal conditioner, please see our 'KT' series.
