The TL 101A range of load cells are designed primarily for measuring the horizontal forces of web tension. The sensor is mounted in between the pillow block bearing and the machine frame.

Load cells for measuring horizontal forces such as the Eilersen TL 101A load cells, are ideal in applications with high tare loads and relatively small tensions in for example paper machines.

In applications where high overloads often occur, the high overload tolerance of the Eilersen load cell adds reliability and minimizes the need for maintenance.

If no or only a small horizontal resultant force is present, you can mount the load cell on a slant to give rise to one.

Eilersen provides software free of charge for calculating the forces in web tension applications:

The TL 101A version is the standard load cell while the TL 101A-ST load cell offers extra safety in applications with heavy rollers and temperature compensation to 100 degr. Celsius.

The use of this software for calculation of web tension and calibration factors or selection of sensors are at the users OWN RISK.
Eilersen Electric AS assumes no responsibility for any loss or damage resulting from the use of this software.
In order to reduce the risk please send the input data and the results to Eilersen Electric A/S for review and confirmation.
