Linear Test Stand
Application Summary

Many industries use load cells to measure their presses or impact stands. FUTEK’s LSB200 Load Cell is suitable for applications needing precise, low-capacity impact measurements.


Products in Use

LSB200 Jr. Miniature S-Beam Load Cell paired with Instrumentation (IPM650, IHH500, USB Solutions, or IAA Series Analog Amplifier). 


How it Works
  1. This application depicts a linear (in-line) low-capacity test stand.

  2. FUTEK's LSB200 Jr. Miniature S-Beam Load Cell has been installed at the base of the test stand, directly in-line with the heating bar and cooling coils. Due to its sophisticated design, the LSB200 is a suitable option as it can withstand the continuous increase and decrease in temperature without affecting the results.

  3. As the linear actuator (with an internal motor drive) applies a compressive force upon the load cell, measurement feedback can be monitored through several instrument variations.

  4. The LSB200's measurements can be streamed directly to a digital display (IPM650 or IHH500), amplified to a PLC using FUTEK's IAA Series analog amplifiers, or streamed directly to a PC utilizing FUTEK's USB  Solutions.

  5. Operators also have the added option of capturing these test results with FUTEK's SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software. This software features live graphing and data logging capabilities.
