TLN/TLS/TLNS Series, Force Sensing Tension Links with Threaded Ends

The TLN, TLS and TLNS Tension Links are another series of unique force sensors developed by Strainsert. These force sensing tension links utilize the internal strain gage process perfected by Strainsert during the last forty five 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. The is unique arrangement provides a most effective means for the protective sealing of the internal electronics while minimizing the adverse effects of extraneous torsion and bending loads.
