"Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things"
Theodore Levitt

FUTEK prides itself as being one of the most innovative Sensor manufacturers. While some may believe that the name "FUTEK" has roots in Kaizen, Demings Philosophy or 6 Sigma it simply means "future technology". For us, "innovation" is not a buzz word but part of our founding gene. Our never ending mission. In 2008 FUTEK introduced the USB output as an option for strain gage type load Cell, Pressure and Torque Sensors with great success. Wow what a novel idea. The introduction of USB Output as an option for Strain Gage type Sensors has received notable attention in industrial publications as well as with Engineers looking to make the switch from analog to digital. This month FUTEK is pleased to announce yet another great innovative achievement:

FUTEK is pleased to offer the first Miniature Digitall Load Cell with USB output and Micro Gram Part Per Million resolution.

The development of this capability had many market segments in mind. The Test and Measurement industry, Nanotechnology, Pharmaceuticals, Medical Device manufacturers, Process Control of fine powder or packaging, and Aeronautical experiments. Knowing how critical low capacity measurement tests are, FUTEK Engineers have delicately worked on integrating the LSB200 S Beam Jr (Miniature Load Cell) with USB Output to have the ability to measure fractional changes. The product also features an overload protection. Due to the demanding application requirements and variables that need to be considered to optimize the performance, we will require you to consult with a FUTEK Engineer before considering this product for your application or purchasing. Therefore at the present time this unique package is not directly available online. You may contact us at (800)-23-FUTEK or 949.465.0900.

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.
Its very common to use Force Sensors, Torque Sensors, Pressure Sensors or Load Cells in Food Manufacturing (Process Control) to automate the production lines. Using various sensors, the production engineers are better able to control the process and improve overall quality. In the illustration provided below a cross feeder conveyor is distributing the food into weighing compartments. By placing Precision Load Cells underneath the weighing compartment, the volume of product/food can be controlled as it is going into the final product package. The Precision Load Cell used in this application is also commonly know as a "Single Point Load Cell". These are specifically produced for OEM usage where a high volume of sensors are needed. The load cell would be used with an in-line amplifier which can then be directly connected to a plc or computer for feedback control or one of the FUTEK instruments with set point alarm or analog output option. A sound alarm can be connected to the plc, computer or the display to Alarm when the process is completed or the tank is full or empty.

FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc. (FUTEK) has just added the LCB500 Tension & Compression Load Cell to their USB Sensor Solution Line. The new module with USB output eliminates the need for an analog amplifier, power supply, and display equipment making usage that much easier. The plug and play gives you power to monitor the output of the sensor and enjoy measurement and are less affected by noise, temperature variation or power supply requirement. The USB integration also includes FUTEK’s USB Software which allows users to monitor the output of the Sensor in real time.
