Load Button With Threaded/Tapped Holes LLB400
With a package that stands at 1.23in (31.2mm) in diameter and 0.39in (9.9mm) in height, the LLB400 Low Profile Load Button Load Cell is an extraordinarily accurate miniature sensor that punches well above its size with a capacity range from 100 to 2500lb (45.3 to 1134kg). This diverse and durable sensor solution features three mounting holes built for press or inline compression applications, such as measuring loads on a turbine shaft or gauging forces on a CNC workpiece.
The LLB400 is now offered with an integrated connector that makes it fully IP67-rated for high water resistance and temporary submersibility. The connectorized 4-position micro receptacle allows you to easily remove the wire from the sensor like a plug from a socket. This new feature protects the sensor from cable damage, as you can easily replace a faulty wire.
The LLB400 is also available in the original design, which features a cable connection with a 10-foot (3.048m) long 28 AWG 4 conductor shielded cable.
Wide range and flexibility
LLB400 series offers button load cells in six capacity options that measure compressive loads from 100 to 2500lb (45.3 to 1134kg), a remarkable range for such a tiny package. Three threaded holes allows the part to be securely mounted from the bottom.
The seam-welded stainless steel body provides outstanding strength and corrosion resistance and provides enhanced protection against physical damage in addition to withstanding other harsh environmental conditions. A special heat treatment process has been applied to the flexure to improve durability, extending the life-cycle of the sensor.
The exceptional quality of this sensor makes it highly durable and reliable. Its body is made of aerospace-grade 17-4 precipitation hardened stainless steel, which provides high strength, high hardness, and corrosion resistance over a wide temperature range.
The robust assembly of the 4-position micro receptacle version eliminates moisture ingress through the connection location. With an IP67 rating, the product can withstand submersion in one meter of water for a minimum of 30 minutes. This opens up more options for applications as it will allow outdoor usage in wet, rainy, or highly humid conditions.
Plug in, plug out
The newer version of this series — including the entire 100 to 2500 lb capacity range — feature the 4-position micro receptacle. This gives the load cell greater flexibility and durability, as a damaged or cut cable can now easily be replaced, saving the user time and resources. It also simplifies the installation process, reducing installation time and maximizing up time.
