Since 2001, FUTEK has been performing an extensive reliability fatigue test on our LSB302 S Beam Tension and Compression Load Cell.
One S Beam Tension and Compression Load Cell (LSB302) paired with Instrumentation (USB Solutions, IPM650 Panel Mount Display, IHH500 Intelligent Digital Hand Held Display, or IAA Series Analog Amplifier).
FUTEK constructed a pneumatic test stand to extensively test the fatigue rate of our LSB302 S Beam Tension and Compression Load Cell.
We began this test in 2001 to decipher the life expectancy of our S-Beam unit.
The pneumatic cylinder delivers the compressive force of 113 lb. at 196,120 times a day.
It is important to note that this particular load cell has a capacity of 100 lb.; therefore, we have been overloading this sensor for almost 15 years to demonstrate the high performance and quality of our product.
We anticipate this load cell will reach one billion cycles on June 1st of 2015.
