OEM Load Cells - Improved for Custom
Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc is now able to offer its LSM250
and LSM300 Precision Load Cells to meet custom requirements
such as high temperature (steel version only), low temperature,
water resistant, and high humidity for custom applications.
In the past these products were not able to withstand to such
environments as the components were exposed (on the LSM250)
or had limited coverage (LSM300). FUTEK Engineers can modify
these standard products to meet more resistive environments.
Additional enhancements can also be made to use these Precision
Load Cells in MRI applications. The standard LSM250/300 Precision
Load Cell series offers an OEM solution with exceptional accuracy
and price for high volume applications. The product is utilized in both tension and compression, and are used in applications such as Medical Bag weighing, Hand Held Force Gage applications, Robotics, and Force Feedback Control Devices.
diagram is a good example of closed loop feed back operation.
It shows how donut / thru hole load cells and pancake load
cells can be used in insertion / press applications for precision
assembly during the manufacturing process. The donut / thru
hole at the top monitors the required load while the pancake
load cell at the bottom checks and verifies the actual load
being applied in order to control alignment for smooth insertion.
In-line Conditioner and Amplifier
FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc. is well known for all
its U.S. manufactured transducers (load cells, force sensors,
torque sensors, pressure sensors). A common form of conditioning
offered by FUTEK to go hand in hand with these U.S. manufactured
transducers is the CSG110, Signal Strain Gage Conditioner
Amplifier. This instrument is Din Rail mountable and provides
a building block approach to monitoring many important applications.
The signal conditioner accepts inputs from a transducer to
measure stress, vibration, and response time which are then
converted to standard current signal. Continuous monitoring
of the customer application may be achieved by connecting the output to an analog input module (PLCs or DCs).
