Tension & Compression Load Cell (LCM300)
Model LCM300 is an Tension and Compression Load Cell built for Endurance, Press, or Inline applications. The standard LCM300 Tension and Compression Load Cell model has a very robust construction available in 17-4 Stainless Steel, with male threads on both ends and a 10 feet long 28 AWG 4 conductor shielded PVC cable. This product offers an exceptional miniature design with a height of 1.20” and a diameter of 1.00”. You will also find options for external matched output or Teflon cable readily available. For a higher capacity range please see the LCM325, LCM350, or LCM375.
High Accuracy Pressure Sensor (PMP621)
The PMP621 Pressure Sensor is a high accuracy transducer suitable for pressure measurements in liquid or gas environments. Specific applications include liquid level measurement, pump control, compressor control, hydraulics and pneumatics. The PMP621 Pressure Sensor is available in mV/V output and has removable din connector and a wide pressure range of 3 – 900 BAR. This Pressure Sensor comes with the option of measuring absolute pressure and is made of all stainless steel construction. The robust design makes it resistant to corrosion and ideal to withstand tough industrial environments. Thin film technology is utilized in this model to achieve the outmost accuracy.
Signal Conditioned Digital Display (IPM480)
The IPM480 Panel Mount Signal Conditioner with Digital Display is FUTEK’s general solution for a complete sensor and instrumentation system. The IPM480 features 60 conversions per second, is scalable to 5 digits ±99,999 resolution, a programmable 10 VDC or 4-20mA and it has a Power supply 85 to 264 VAC.
Rotary Torque Sensor - Shaft to Shaft (TRS300)
FUTEK’s Rotary Torque Sensor - Shaft to Shaft offers a unique solution for torque auditing applications. The TRS300 Rotary Torque Sensor - Shaft to Shaft is available in a wide capacity range and utilizes strain gauge technology. For those who are a looking for a complete system solution, FUTEK can provide both signal conditioned displays or our VCal Portable System. FUTEK’s VCal Portable System brings an easy-to-use system verification directly to the customer making it ideal for on-site verification and calibration of your products. FUTEK TRS Series is also available with TEDS / IEEE1451.4 option.
Shunt Resistor
FUTEK offers a variety of shunt cal resistors as an accessory to be used with FUTEK strain-gauged displays + controllers. FUTEK’s shunt resistors act as a simulation of a load or as an “electronic load”. Selecting a resistor to scale 75% - 80% of the sensor is the rule of thumb. Shunt resistors will allow users to verify output. FUTEK’s resistors are highly accurate and have a low PPM of 50PPM for every change and small changes in extreme temperatures from -40 degrees C to 100 degrees C. FUTEK offers 3 standard shunt resistors from 60.4k ohm’s, 100k ohm’s, and 150k ohm’s; however according to the value, product and bridge resistance FUTEK can customize a shunt resistor to fit your needs. Our sensors use bonded foil strain gages and are typically used in a Wheatstone Bridge with a Full-Bridge configuration. The Full-Bridge consists of four resistors. In electronics, a Shunt Resistor is used to allow the current to pass around another point in the circuit. This simulation can be used as a tool to verify the output of the sensor. Shunt Resistors typically have a very small tolerance (±0.01%) and a very small Temperature Coefficient (±10ppm/°C).
