Output signal

Passive Signal:
The loadpin is equipped with a strain gauges full bridge . The output signal is mV/V and it can be used with any standard weight indicator or Strain gauge amplifier.

The loadpin is equipped with an integrated amplifier. The electronics contains the functions Tara and Auto Scale. (Note: Loadpins with a diameter less than 50mm is equipped with an additional head to house the electronics.)

Current signal:
The loadpin has an integrated amplifier. The electronics contains the functions Tara and Auto Scale. The current version is often used in the power plant and safety engineering, because a cable break monitoring is possible by a decrease of the current signal to 0mA. (Note: Loadpins with a diameter less than 50mm is equipped with an additional head to house the electronics.)

Material Selection

The steel grade 42CrMo4 QT (1.7225) is considered high-strength steel. The high-strength aerospace stainless steel is especially recommended for harsh environmental conditions.

12 Working days (170 %)
15 Working days (150 %)
20 Working days (130 %)
30 Working days (115 %)
40 Working days (100 %)


IP protection rating:
IP64 (dust-tight, protected against splashing water on all sides) - PU grouting
IP66 (dust-tight, protected against strong water jets) - grouting with adhesively bonded caps
IP68 (dust-tight, protected against long-term immersion) - laser-welded cap

Operating temperature:
Loadpins can be designed for specific operating temperatures.
Standard (-20°C to +85°C)
Higher (-40°C to +135°C)
High (-40°C to +185°C)

Redundant System:
The loadpin is equipped with two independent sensor systems. The signals are carried by a multicore cable.

Redundant design

Two axes:
The loadpin is able to measure forces in two axes which are orthogonal to each other. The cross-talk between both directions is documented in the calibration sheet.
Uni-axial Loadpin
Bi-axial Loadpin

Lubrication hole:
If the pins are deployed in bearings, a lubrication hole is often required. For lubricated pins, it is recommended that a protection rating of at least IP66 is chosen. (This option is subject to confirmation until all technical details have been clarified.)

Material Test Certificate 3.1B in acc. with EN10204:
In Material Test Certificate 3.1B, the mechanical properties, the chemical composition of the starting material and the ultrasonic testing are confirmed by the steel supplier.
Pins without Test Certificate 3.1B
Pins with Test Certificate 3.1

Non-recurring options

Strength verification
This option reveals the entire mechanical structure of the loadpin. The security of the pin is verified, with the place of installation and the load case being taken into account.
