2519 Series S-beam Static Load Cells


The 2519 Series load cells are specifically designed for use with 3400 and 3300 Series single column testing systems. 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 40% of the force capacity, 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.

Instron 2519 series load cells are precision force transducers consisting of a full strain gauge bridge bonded to a stiff and highly linear elastic element. When the element is subjected to a force, the electrical resistance of the gauges changes, providing an output signal proportional to the applied force.

The load cells are suitable for tension, compression, cyclic and reverse stress testing. They have a wide measurement range allowing accurate force measurements to be made down to 1/500th of the force capacity, reducing the need to change load cells.

Application Range

  • Force capacities from ±10 N - ±5 kN (1 – 500 kgf, 2.2 – 1,125 lbf)
  • 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 means simple, error-free operation
  • Integral overload protection reduces the possibility of damage during handling and use
  • Tare weight 40% of force capacity – 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
