Web Tension Control: Tension Load Cell Amplifier

Load Cell Amplifier 

Classic Load Cell Amplifier 

The Cleveland-Kidder® Load Cell Amplifier interfaces with a wide variety of controllers for monitoring and measuring precise web tension. It is lightweight, low-cost and low-profile, providing excitation and signal conditioning for either one or two foil or strain gage web tension transducers (load cells). It is easy to set-up and calibrate and it is virtually impervious to EMI emissions.

 Two product lines are available: the ULTRA Line and the Classic Line. Select the ULTRA Line for applications requiring a wide range of tension, which provides a 40:1 tension range (Example: 2.5 lbs : 100 lbs on 100 lb load cell). For traditional applications select the Classic Line.
