FUTEK: 25 Years in the Making
Now On-Demand!
Test and measurement applications catering toward the medical industry have specific requirements. From lead-free (RoHS) to CE compliant to non-magnetic to miniature size, these applications call for acute precision and attention to detail. Understanding this, our team compiled an online presentation demonstrating how miniature load cells, with the right instrumentation and software, can effectively produce automated control feedback testing platforms.
Highlighting our LSB200 Miniature S-Beam Jr. Load Cell, our senior application engineer details how versatility becomes a factor, especially when comparing size to capacity range, and how accessories can reinvent a load cell's functionality. In addition to the sensor's composition, data analysis plays a major factor. In fact,

instrumentation and software have the potential to make or break the success of any application.
FUTEK's electrical engineering and software team addresses many end-user/developer considerations within this webinar. Speed, resolution, reliability, and support all contribute to the overall outcome, as well as how adaptability (in terms of software) becomes key.
Lastly, this presentation focuses on true application examples from syringe testing (as seen below in this newsletter) to new developments in robotic limbs. We hope that you have the opportunity to carve out some time to view this webinar — because it's pretty awesome!

Amplifier Wiring & Installation
Setting up your FUTEK CSG110 Universal Strain Gauge Amplifier is a lot easier when you have a visual reference. That's why our technical support team put together a 10-minute demonstration spotlighting the wiring of the DB9 connector, the voltage and current output setups, shunt, and shunt calibration. Within each phase of this demo, our specialists will identify the tools and requirements needed to perform each task. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
