2 DOF : 2 Translation Fx= Fy = 200lb \$1800

3 DOF: 3 Translation, Landing Gear Sensor Fx, Fy = 50,000 lb Fz = 150,000 lb 46” x 32”

2 DOF: 1 Translation + 1 Rotation Fz = 50~200lb Mx = 50~200lb-in Φ2.23in \$1600

3 DOF: 1 Translation + 2 Rotation Fz =1,000~50,000 lb, Mx,My =400~2,000 in-lb

6 DOF: 3 Translation + 3 Rotation Fx, Fy = 50~500 lb Fz = 100~1,000 lb Mx, My = 100~1,000 in-lb Mz = 50~500 in-lb 3”x 3”

6 DOF: 3 Translation + 3 Rotation Fx, Fy = 5,000~10,000 lb Fz = 10,000~20,000 lb Mx, My = 40,000~80,000 in-lb Mz = 20,000~40,000 in-lb 8” x 8”

6 DOF: 3 Translation + 3 Rotation Fx, Fy = 500~2,000 lb Fz = 1,000~4,000 lb Mx, My = 6,000~12,000 in-lb Mz = 3,000~6,000 in-lb 12”x 12”

6 DOF: 3 Translation + 3 Rotation Fx, Fy = 500~2,000 lb Fz = 1,000~4,000 lb Mx = 4,000~16,000 in-lb My = 8,000~32,000 in-lb Mz = 4,500~18,000 in-lb 20” x 8”

6 DOF: 3 Translation + 3 Rotation, Landing Gear Sensor Fx, Fy = 25,000 lb Fz = 50,000 lb Mz= 25,000 ft-lb (300,000 in-lb) Mx=My=50,000 ft-lb (600,000 in-lb) 32” x 32”

How does it works? P P Axial strain ε  Axial load P

How does it works? T T strain ε  max. σ max  τ  Torsional moment T 45 ◦ τ τ τ τ σ min = -τ σ max = τ ε

How does it works? Different Manufacturers make different type of multi-axis load cell  different “Know-how” No information about their design

Summary 1. General Capacity of Multi-axis Load Cell Fx = Fy < Fz Mz < Mx = My 2. Max. Capacity of 6 DOF Load Cell Fx = Fy =25,000 lb Fz = 50,000lb Mz= 25,000 ft-lb ( 300,000 in-lb) Mx=My= 50,000 ft-lb ( 600,000 in-lb )
