Tensile / compressive force sensor X-136

Area: 0.5-20 kN
Size: Ø 51x 34
Notes: M12 male thread / M12 female thread

Tensile / compressive force sensor X-136

Tension and compression force sensor. Two versions, M12 male thread and M12 female thread. Force range 0.5-20kN. Size Ø 51x 34 mm

The all-rounder tension and compression force sensor X-136 comes in two different versions. The first version offers two M12 male threads. The second version comes with one M12 threaded rod and one M12 female thread.

The force transducer is suitable as a tensile force sensor, as well as a compressive force sensor in static and dynamic applications. The tension and compression force transducer measures precisely and quickly within the force range from 0.5 kN to 20 kN and offers excellent long-term stability. The diameter of the load cell is 51 mm.

For the measuring principle of the inline force sensors diaphragm measuring bodies are used, on which the strain gauges are applied. The strain gauge force sensor is integrated directly into the force flow and the force application takes place centrically and axially via the two threaded bolts. The load cell offers uncomplicated load application via the opposite threaded connections.


  • Force introduction can be customized for OEM applications
  • Very good price-performance ratio
  • Low overall height for space-saving installation
  • With female thread M12 or male thread M12 as force introduction
  • Encapsulated version IP65
  • Available for tensile and compressive forces from 0.5 kN to 20 kN

Electrical connection

The force sensors from X-Sensors are based on a strain gauge full bridge with strain gauges. The output signal for this sensor is specified in mV/V. Various input modules of controllers already allow the direct connection of force sensors with strain gauge full bridge.

Additionally, measuring amplifiers with voltage output (0-10 V) and current output (4-20 mA) are available, which amplify the strain gauge full bridges accordingly. The measuring amplifiers are available in a robust field housing or for DIN rail mounting. Brand new is the compact inline amplifier X-201-IN09 from X-Sensors, which can be used universally for static and cyclic measurements and offers an excellent price-performance ratio.

Mechanical connection / design

Due to their compact design, our tension and compression force sensors are suitable for mounting in very limited spaces. The force is applied via the respective internal and external threads, through which the tensile and compressive force is centrally absorbed.

Due to the solid, weatherproof stainless steel housing, according to IP 65, the tension and compression force sensors are very reliable and robust. This guarantees trouble-free operation even under stressful environmental conditions.

These properties make the load cells ideal for versatile applications where high accuracy is required, such as force monitoring in pressing and joining processes, apparatus engineering, toolmaking, special machine engineering, and industrial production automation.
