Force Sensing Tension Links
The Force Sensing Tension Link is another unique strain gage transducer developed by Strainsert. Tension links, also called tension load cells, utilize the internal strain gage process perfected by Strainsert during the last sixty years and used so successfully in Strainsert bolts, load pins, and load cells. The sensing element consists of a strain gage bridge circuit internally installed in a small hole along the longitudinal axis. This unique arrangement provides a most effective means for the protection and sealing of the internal electronics while minimizing the adverse effects of extraneous torsional and bending loads.
