In order to continuously provide FUTEK customers with the useful and critical information needed to learn about their products, FUTEK engineers and employees have put together interactive and informational videos now available for viewing. Recently created and accessible on the FUTEK website is a video showing how easy the simply plug & play sensor solution is to start using. The video titled “Getting Started” features the step by step process of how one can start using their FUTEK sensor. This process is literally the easy two step process of plugging in your sensor and starting your software; you can then begin gathering data for your application. Plug it and go, Sensor Solutions made simple by FUTEK.
To add to FUTEK’s customer support, also available is a keynote presentation explaining all you need to know about FUTEK’s USB Sensor Solution along with the USB technical specifications. The video acts as a tutorial with 2 demonstrations showing the setup process as well as details of converting a sensor to USB output. The presentation is especially helpful in understanding the advantages of FUTEK’s USB Solution versus the traditional sensor setup. These advantages illustrate FUTEK’s Quick, Smart, and Cost Effective USB Sensor Solution. Screenshots of FUTEK’s USB Basic software and Extended software with explanations of the software’s function are also included in the keynote presentation.
FUTEK’s Miniature Load Cells and Sub Miniature Load Cell series provide diverse solutions for Aerospace, Medical, Automotive, and Manufacturing industries. These products offer solutions for applications in both Tension and Compression. Even with the miniature design an impressive capacity range of of 10 gram up to 20,000 lbs is available.
FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology is offering their In-Line Load Cell with a USB output option. The LCM300 is a Tension and Compression built for Endurance, Press, or Inline applications. The LCM300 In-line Load Cell now available with USB Output eliminates the need for an analog amplifier, power supply, and display equipment making usage easy to use and much more effective. You can enjoy measurement which is less affected by noise, temperature variation or power supply requirement with the simple plug and play system. This USB integration also gives you power to monitor the output of the sensor and includes FUTEK’s USB Basic Software which allows users to monitor the output of the Sensor in real time.
The field of Biometrics involves applications where the testing of bone strength and detection of axial force in human muscle tissue is tested in order to obtain critical data in testing. Illustrated in the diagram is a typical application using an In-Line Load Cell to predict pathologic fractures on long bones; in this case a femur is being tested by applying force in two directions.

Designed for general research applications including the fields of medicine, industrial ergonomics and sports science, the In-Line load cell makes an ideal sensor for research and testing applications.
