Reference force sensor XCR-171

Reference and heavy-load force transducer with load rates up from 630 to 20.000 kN

The XCR-171 series force transducer is suitable for reference force measurements in applications where high accuracies and low transverse force sensitivities are required.

The reference transducers can be supplied with an officially recognized calibration certificate on request. The force sensors are based on proven strain gauge technology and provide a linear signal proportional to the applied compressive force.

Due to the robust design of the pressure force transducer and the two carrying handles, the pressure load cell is very easy to transport to different locations. The dimensions of the strain gauge force sensor are 158 mm in diameter, depending on the version.

The compression force sensor is especially suitable for reference measurements of large compression forces up to 20,000 kN.

  • Solid steel housing
  • Encapsulated design with IP65 protection
  • Easy handling with carrying handles
  • Specific measuring ranges available
  • Plane-parallel ground ring surfaces


Connected to an indicator, the high load compression force transducer is ideal for taking reference measurements:

  • Verification of maximum press force (peak measurement).
  • Calibration of strain sensors for indirect force measurements
  • Reference measurement of the pressing force
  • Calibration of the closing force
  • Verification of load distribution on large platforms


The load cell can be connected to an external display device. We recommend the X-318, which allows display via a web browser. The visualization can be accessed via a laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

The connection to the laptop, tablet, or smartphone is established via a WLAN network set up by the X-318. No Internet connection is required for operation.

A total of two or four measurement channels are available, which can be viewed simultaneously. In addition to the intuitive visualization, a data logger function is also available, saving the measured values in an Excel file on your PC.
