The WMCP miniature load cell series from Interface adds overload protection to the family of environmentally sealed, stainless steel housed, proprietary temperature-compensated strain gauges. Load cell sizes are small for convenient mounting and machine integration.
The LTH350 load cell from Futek Advanced Sensor Technology is now available with a USB output option. The load cell provides miniature solutions for applications where space is limited. This particular miniature donut load cell is suitable for press or inline compression applications.
Hardy Instruments has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Schneider Electric as a member of its Collaborative Automation Partner Program (CAPP).
Futek Advanced Sensor Technology has released the LLB400 miniature load button load cell with improved overall accuracy. The load cell has a high accuracy with a deflection of 38 µm nominal and an operating temperature of -50 to 93°C.
The Futek LPM200 panel-mount load cell offers miniature size, a robust flexure and low capacity of 10 g to 2.2 kg. A common challenge for low-capacity sensors is the damage the sensor can incur during installation. With the LPM200’s design, this challenge has been greatly minimised. The product features an overload protection of 1000% of rated output for the full range. By threading the flexure, the LPM200 can easily be installed for usage. The LPM200 uses a tough 28 AWG 4-conductor braided shield clear PVC cable.
The model LSB210 submersible S-beam load cell from Futek Advanced Sensor Technologies can be used in applications where protection from liquids is required. Examples of applications include fibre tension, medical bag weighing and automated feedback control systems.
The Futek LSB600 S-beam load cell is a high-capacity tension and compression transducer with a wide capacity, ranging from 44.5 to 111 kN. With the USB output option, engineers can eliminate the need for an analog amplifier, power supply and display equipment. The USB integration also includes the company’ USB software which allows users to monitor the output of the sensor in real time.
The 6918/6998 universal load cells, from BCM Sensors, are manufactured based on advanced metal foil strain gauge technology. They are made from either alloy steel (6918), with a nickel-plated treatment or stainless steel (6998).
Amalgamated Instrument Co now offers a range of annular ring or ‘washer’ load cells.
The KIMD-M load cell module is for harsh environments and heavy-duty applications and has a movable load point to allow for thermal expansion of the weigh system.
The model 3417/3497 single-ended shear beam load cells from BCM Sensors are low-profile, high-precision load cells based on the shear-beam working principle. These load cells can find applications in hopper scales and platform scales, or can be used to measure beam bending loads.
The FN7110/FN7236 series double range load cells from FGP Sensors and Instrumentation feature high-accuracy measurement channels in two ranges in the same load cell.
The 5719/5799 model double-ended shear-beam load pins from BCM Sensor Technologies are made from either alloy steel (5719) or stainless steel (5799) and sealed to IP66 or IP67 protection grade, depending on application conditions.
The N11 series from Showa Measuring Instruments includes single axis, general purpose-type foil strain gauges.
Dacell UMM load cells are suitable for both compression or tension usage. These load cells are extremely small and lightweight, and are rated to protection class IP67.
