Product Details Supplier Info More products

RDP Electronics has an extensive range of load cells, including the Model MPB, which can now be provided for loads of up to 1,000 tons.

These high-capacity load cells have been deployed on oil-rigs and for measurements on high structures and testing of very large structures.

For tension/compression applications, the Model 41 is a tough load cell of stainless-steel construction and is suited to applications where consistent performance with long lifecycles is also required.

Available with versions offering a measurement range from 22N to 2.2MN and best linearity of +/-0.1 per cent FS, the Model 41 can also be built to order in special versions with different options and ranges to the standard.

Some load cells can be built to meet IP 68 classification for use in applications exposed to the weather, or in materials suited for use in marine environments.

RDP Electronics – experts in measurement solutions

Measurement experts RDP Electronics Ltd have 45 years experience in developing transducers for a diverse range of applications in research, prototype testing, industrial plant and machinery, or embodied in products. Examples are numerous, spanning industries that include aerospace, automotive, structural engineering and power generation. The company is responsible for the development and manufacture of a comprehensive programmme of transducer products and associated electronics to recognised international standards for accurate and reliable measurement of displacement, load, pressure and torque. Often the best solutions have a simple elegance that is possible thanks in part to the quality and high reliability of the transducers they supply. Because of their knowledge and expertise RDP’s skilled engineering team is frequently invited to propose solutions to measurement challenges.

RDP Design, manufacture and market a wide range of LVDT and other displacement transducers. LVDT Displacement transducers accurately measure position and displacement. The strength of the LVDT is in its principle of operation. As LVDT sensors are inductive, there is no electrical connection across the sensing element ensuring clean data and a long life.

The LVDT operation principle lends itself to use in extreme environments. LVDTs can be made to work submerged in sea water, in temperatures of 600°C (1100°F) in high nuclear ratiation and at pressures of up to 2000bar (30,000psi).
