Measuring at the anchor point

Sensors for measurement at the fixed point can be easily mounted and are ideal for measuring the rope load. A measurement of the individual rope load is possible, whereby a continuous monitoring takes place by which an even rope load can be guaranteed. Only short cables have to be laid from the measuring point to the control unit. This method has no influence on the legally required crossing height of elevators and is therefore particularly suitable for new installations and modernization projects. The sensors feature an innovative and effective overload protection. X-SENSORS thus offers a unique solution on the market, with a large number of realized applications.

Load measurement and monitoring of rope tension. Inner diameter for M10 / M12 / M16 / M20 threaded rods. Universal installation directly in the rope suspension. Setting of uniform rope load during installation. Unit sensitive.
M10 / M12 / M16 / M20 | Total load 240 - 2000 kg | OEM applications

Measuring at the yoke

Measurement on the yoke is a cost-effective solution because only one sensor is required, which can be easily mounted without mechanical modifications. At the same time, the accuracy can be significantly increased by connecting a second sensor to the evaluation unit. The sensors are overload-proof, and the method is suitable for modernizations and for new installations. Highly sensitive sensors are available for yoke measurements with particularly low elongation, and sensors with a length of only 100 (instead of 300) millimeters are available for particularly short yokes. Measurements can be made from 300 kg to 5 t.

Yoke strain sensor X-103-S01-300
Force measurement at the yoke

Strain gage for load measurement at the yoke of the elevator cabin. The X-103 strain sensor records the strain on the screw-on surfaces. With solid steel housing for safe operation.
Universal, all force measurement applications | 300x25x16 | Modernization and new installations

Measurement under the cabin floor

Measurement at the booth floor enables maximum measurement accuracy. Thus, zero load measurements are accurate to within 5kg to detect empty booths with certainty. Due to the high resolution of the sensors (1:1000), small loads (e.g. 240kg) can be measured just as accurately as large loads (up to 10 t).

Load cell X-132
Load measurement at the
elevator cabin

Load measurement under the booth floor with very high accuracy. With the X-132, both empty booths and overload cases are measured with high reliability.
800 kg | 190 x 45 x 48 mm | Under the cabin floor

Flat load-cell X-133
Load measurement in elevators

Flat load cell for mounting under the car floor, car frame or under the frame of the drive. Usable for a wide range of car and working weights. Solid steel housing and sealed design (IP67).
10-25 kN | Ø 153x15 | flat load cell for mounting under the cabin floor

Measurement underneath the motor frame

Measurement under the motor frame is particularly effective for new installations, but it is also an interesting alternative for modernizations. Installation is child’s play and only short cables need to be laid from the measuring point to the controller. The measurement can be carried out with two sensors and is therefore particularly cost-effective. At the same time, there is the simple option of increasing the accuracy of the results comparatively easily by adding further sensors. The sensors are overload-proof.

Load cell X-130
Load measurement at the
elevator cabin

Suitable for elevator load measurement and as a universal compression force sensor in the force range 0.5-25 kN. Dimensions of 40 x 16 mm.
0.5-25 kN | 40 x 16 mm | Protected against overload

Measuring at the cable

With this method, the sensors are attached to the rope or belt, which works simply and requires no mechanical modifications. The sensors are overload-proof and equipped with a gentle rope support to prevent wear. The mechanical system is designed to be configured for ropes with diameters from 8 to 22 mm. This solution covers an extensive load range from 30 to 1500 kg per rope.

Cable clamp X-135
Load measurement for steel
cables and belts

Rope clamp for steel ropes and belts for load measurement. Simple installation thanks to rope clamp. Excellent for modernizations and on-site retrofits.

Load measuring interfaces

Evaluation units from X-SENSORS convert the measured values from sensors into current, voltage, frequency, LONbus and relay output. The electronics carries out a zero point correction through the floor detection for particularly precise measurement results. Furthermore, the evaluation units have a programmable slack rope detection.
