As manufacturing capability evolves and the demands for finer wire, filament and textile material increase, so does the need for tension control in extremely light applications. To meet this critical need MAGPOWR has developed the LC-500G, 500 gram load cell. With a full wheat-stone bridge strain gage configuration, the LC-500G meets the same industry leading specifications as all other MAGPOWR load cells. The LC-500G also employs 360 degrees of overload protection preventing the need for recalibration in the event of overload situations.
The LC-500G is designed to mount easily into almost any single strand installation. A pair of supplied jam nuts allow you to easily mount the unit into your machine frame with simple depth and orientation adjustment. The LC-500G is constructed from corrosion resistant, nickel-plated aluminum and is provided with a 1" diameter X 1/8" wide anodized aluminum pulley. For applications requiring special pulleys, the LC-500GS1 is available with provisions for a customer-supplied pulley.
