Tension link load cells

Tension link load cells from octogon are used worldwide by leading manufacturers. Our products are approved for even the highest safety requirements. We guarantee the necessary performance level in the plant, for instance when the measuring device needs to be of redundant design. Tension link load cells from octogon are also certified for use in potentially explosive zones.

Fast delivery is not just a promise but a commitment when you order our premium tension link load cells.

In these technologies the sensor is placed within the direct flow of force. This allows reliable measurement of force even when very high loads are being moved: For example, in cranes or other large lifting equipment – possibly in harbours of offshore applications. Octogon tension link load cells are the right solution even in such challenging fields of application.

Customer-specific production of load links or tension transducers is of course possible.

Area of application

The hook-in cable load cell S-ZGWZ was specifically developed to measure cable forces and hooked crane- / lift weighing applications. Even with compact dimensions and low weight, the device is highly accurate. Thanks to a robust design, the S-ZGWZ is also suitable for rough environmental conditions.
