Zeiss Ultra In-situ Load Cell

Ultra in-situ load cell

  • Specifcally designed for mechancial loading (compression, tension and indentation) on the ZEISS Xradia 810 Ultra
  • Typical mode of operation is to acquire tomograms at different load stages (static condition)
  • Piezo actuator for closed loop displacement control with a 500 micron displacement and a resolution of 10 nanometres
  • Strain gauge force sensor with a 0.8 N maximum force and <0.1% sensitivity
  • Customizable anvil tips for different operating modes, sample types and experimental designs
