The Futek LPM200 panel mount load cell has a protective design for easier installation.

Futek Advanced Sensor Technology Inc. added the LPM200 Panel Mount Load Cell to its miniature sensors line. It also has a USB output option. The Panel Mount Load Cell (LPM200) offers distinct advantage in its miniature size, a robust flexure and low capacity of 10 gram to 5 lb. 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 minimized. It has overload protection of 1000% (not a typo) of Rated Output for all the capacities (10 grams to 5 lb). The installation of the product also became a critical design focus for Futek engineers. By threading the flexure, the LPM200 can easily be installed for usage. The LPM200 uses a tough #28 AWG 4 Conductor Braided Shielded Clear PVC cable but as an extra feature, this model may also be offered with a USB output option.

 

The LPM can easily be threaded onto a platform during installation, the company said. The product was built for a diverse range of applications such as fiber tensile force measurement or automated feedback control systems. The LPM200 is a model from Futek's miniature Sensors line with a diameter of 0.75 in. and height of 2.09 in. The load cell has a high accuracy with an operating temperature of -67 °F to 221 °F. It is particularly suitable for critical applications involving tight or limited space. This model also has a nonlinearity starting at 0.1%, deflection of 0.005-in. nominal. This Panel Mount Load Cell can be modified or customized to meet your requirements and most capacities are in inventory, available for 24 hour shipping. The load cell product line is manufactured in the U.S. and uses metal foil strain gauge technology. www.futek.com
