Tension and compression pin load cells

Ranges: from 0 up to 1 … 60ton.

Built-in electronics (option): analog or digital outputs.

Environmental protection: IP65.

The built-in electronics allows to use series MD5000 load cells also in industrial environments with electrical noises (inverters, electrical actuators etc.).

Series MD5000 load cell are used for force measurement, weighing and antioverload protector on pulleys, cranes, hoists, as a closed loop control in automatic machines and machine tools, on cableways and for towing tension control on vehicles.

The load cell is well protected against dirt by means of siliconic sealants and rubbers allowing an IP65 rating.

Digital outputs:

- RS485 and RS422 (Protocols: DSEbus, Modbus).

Non-linearity: <±0,2%FS.

Environmental protection: IP65.

Force is applied onto the central section of series MD5000 pin load cells (see size "G" of technical bulletin) and the reaction force is on the side sections (see sizes "E" of technical bulletin).

Series MD5000 load have been designed for heavy duty applications where safety is a must (there is a safety margin of 200%FS and a rupture limit of 500% FS).

The extreme ruggedness is obtained by using a body in solid rod that increases the flexional strength of the central section and the shear strength on the lateral cavities.

Series MD5000 are available as "S" (= standard) version and as "L" (= Long) version where the central "G" longness size can be as long as required by customers provided that the unitary strain does not exceed 20-25Kg/mm2

The MD5000 series can have a CE marked built-in electronics


The digital electronics has an high resolution 24bit A/D converter and allows a long distance data transmission protected against electrical noise.

The digital electronics with RS485 and RS422 outputs (DSEbus and Modbus protocols) allows the following functions: calibration and data transmission in engineering units (kg, tons, daN etc.), dynamic zero, digital filter (sampling rate from 7,5 up to 960 Hz), high accuracy (up to 10 linearization points) and an easy service (overload events memory).

Software: It is provided free of charge, with RS485 and RS422 outputs (DSEbus and Modbus protocols), also a software to be installed into the user's computer (not included) that allows an easy setting of the electronics working parameters and a data visualization.

The load cell has a built in calibration circuitry whenever it has the 1mV/V not amplified output.

A calibration certificate is provide together with every unit.

The load cell is well protected against dirt by means of siliconic sealants and rubbers allowing an IP65 rating.
