Rod End Load Cells

Our rod-end load cells are designed for integration into tension measurement in applications such as process automation, quality assurance, and production monitoring. We also offer a sphere and clevis style model, which is particularly effective for off-axis/side loading applications due to their excellent bending strength. They are versatile, durable, and fit easily into small spaces such as inline with vehicle tie rods. Standard capacities are 500, 1k, 2k, 5k,10k, and 20k lbs.


  • Excellent side- and moment-loading capabilities
  • Cost-effective
  • Standard Full Scale ranges are 500 to 20,000 lbs
  • Fatigue resistant
  • Tension and compression
  • Proprietary design for optimal side-loading strength due to misalignment and off axis loading
  • Industry standard mounting threads 3/4-16 (500 to 2k lb capacities) and 1-14 (5k to 20k lb capacities)


  • Automotive durability and reliability testing in small spaces, such as in-vehicle load measurements and in-line with vehicle tie rods
  • Adapts directly to hydraulic cylinders used in vehicle component validation
  • Cable/rope tensile testing
  • Industrial control/feedback testing
