2530 Series Static Load Cells

Instron® load cells are a key part of a materials testing system. Instron is the only global materials testing supplier that designs and manufactures its own load cells. This ensures that Instron load cells meet the unique requirements of materials testing such as; high accuracy over a wide measurement range, high stiffness, resistance to offset loads, accurate alignment and excellent zero stability.

2530 Series load cells with capacities of 5 N to 100 N are for use with 3300 and 5900 testing systems. 2530 Series Load cells with capacities of 500 N to 100 kN are for use with 3300 testing systems.  The design, manufacture, and performance verification is conducted with materials testing applications in mind. Automatic transducer recognition and electrical calibration makes them easy to use. The load cells incorporate overload protection and can withstand loads up to 150% of their force capacity without damage and 300% without mechanical failure. The load cells allow the user to zero out the tare weight of a grip or fixture that weighs up to 10% or 40% of the force capacity, depending on the model, while still maintaining the full specified accuracy.

All Instron load cells are individually temperature-compensated and tested for accuracy and repeatability on calibration apparatus that is traceable to international standards, with a measurement uncertainty that does not exceed one-third of the permissible error of the load cell.

Application Range

  • Suitable for a range of test types, including tension, compression, cyclic, and reverse stress
  • Accurate measurements down to 1/500th of load cell capacity means fewer load cells and fewer load cell changes
  • Automatic recognition with electronic serial number and electrical calibration allows for simple, error-free operation
  • Tare weight 10% or 40% of force capacity, depending on model – can be used with a wide range of grips and fixtures
  • Complies with all international force measurement standards, including ASTM E4, ISO 7500-1 class 0.5, and JIS B7721, B7733
