The model is offered in 500 to 5,000 lbs, various outputs (3 mV/V, +/-5 V dc, +/-10 V dc, 4-20 mA), with heat-treated 17-4 stainless steel construction. LCF400 also features zero-joint failure, low impact due to extraneous loads, and the capability of efficiently handling off-center loading. With female/female threads, it has a broad capacity ranging from 250 to 5,000 lbs. It uses metal foil strain gauge technology with nonlinearity of www.futek.com Futek Advanced Sensor Technology
