Overview

Due to the mechanical design, the FN3042 is especially durable.  It measures tension and compression in standard ranges from 5 kN to 500 kN and is able to undergo more than 1 000 000 cycles of full scale with very little change in zero offset stability.

The sensor housing can be supplied fully stainless steel with high IP protection level for fatigue test benches or regulation in high temperature or corrosive fluids environments.

With many years of experience as a designer and manufacturer of sensors, Measurement Specialties, Inc. often works with customers to design or customize sensors for specific uses and testing environments. To meet your needs we also offer complete turnkey systems. The matched components (sensor, power, amplifier and digital display) are formatted, calibrated and ready for immediate use.
