Series R01

Tension and Compression Force Sensors

Series R01 rugged smart sensors are designed for measuring tension and compression force, with applications in virtually every industry. Durable S-Beam design with threaded holes on two sides allows for many configurations.

Capacities available from 50 to 10,000 lbF [250 N to 50 kN]. Compatible with Mark-10 indicators (sold separately) through unique Plug & Test® technology.

The sensors can be integrated into an existing system or mounted to a Mark-10 test stand.

Add suffix -1 to the model number when using an R01 sensor with any of the following test stands (ex: MR01-1000-1):

Requires a Mark-10 indicator, available separately.

  • Member of the Plug & Test® family of interchangeable sensors and indicators
  • Measures tensile and compressive forces
  • NIST-traceable certificate of calibration with data is included. If the sensor is ordered with an indicator, a certificate for the set (indicator + sensor) can be supplied upon request, at no additional charge.
  • Warranty: 3 years
  • Accuracy: 
    ± 0.15% of full scale + indicator
  • Weight:
    From 1.9 to 3 lb (0.9 to 1.4 kg)
