> LSM250

Lightweight and highly accurate with low capacity range

The compact and lightweight LSM250 is one of the most accurate load cells in FUTEK’s catalog of high precision sensors. Designed for easy integration into OEM tension and compression applications, the sensor, which is also known as a belt buckle load cell, has a unique design that allows the unit to measure very low capacities with high accuracy and reliability. The precision of the LSM250, combined with its low capacity range, 50 lb safe overload, and robust construction makes it a one-of-a-kind product.

The mounting provisions — two side holes for mounting and a center hole for loading — offer easy integration, and the unit is slim enough to enable side-by-side installation.

LSM250 is ideal for high volume continuous usage and Its high accuracy makes it especially suitable for medical applications.

  • Height: 23.6mm
  • Width: 9.5mm
  • Weight: 28g
  • capacity: 113.4 to 454g

Impressive lightweight design

With a length of 1.49in (37.8mm), width of 0.38in (9.5mm) and with a height of 0.93in (24mm), the LSM250 is specifically targeted for OEM applications that require space saving design. Made of light-weight aluminium alloy, the sensor itself weighs only 28 grams.

LSM250

Robust construction

LSM250 sensor models are built with aerospace grade aluminium alloy AL2024, which is known for its high strength, durability, and corrosion resistance.

Ideal for OEM applications

The LSM250 is built specifically for OEM applications, as the model eliminates all exterior components like cover or casing and even cable jackets and connector pins in order to reduce the footprint as much as possible. Due to these exposed components, the sensor requires white-glove handling during installation and set-up.

Integrated overload protection

The unique overload stop design protects the sensor from damage during accidental overload in both tension and compression modes. It also decreases the risk of mechanical breakage and yield as the overload stop helps to stop the part from deflecting, which prevents the metal from going into its yield state.

Uniquely low capacity range

The LSM250 has an extremely low capacity range from 250g to 1lb. Due to the complexity of manufacturing such a low range, this is the only sensor the market of its kind.

Exceptional non-linearity

Offering high stiffness and hence high natural frequency, the material and design provides the lowest nonlinearity (0.05%) and non-repeatability (0.05%) offered by any FUTEK sensor, which is especially impressive considering the unit’s low capacity range. The parallelogram structure allows the beam design to convert the load into high strain, which is monitored by the metal foil strain gauge.

Excellent thermal performance

The LSM250 provides reliable performance over a wide temperature range of –60°F to 200°F (–50 to 93°C) allowing you to use the sensor in various applications and environments.

Easy integration

LSM250 is offered with a standard 4-conductor spiral Teflon cable that allows data collection. The load cell can be paired with signal conditioners, amplifiers and indicators for specific OEM applications and interfaced quickly to your existing equipment.

LSM100

Versatile and customizable

As all aluminum models have the same thread size and the same mounting, two capacities can easily be swapped if the product weighing range increases or decreases. The spiral 6in (15cm) Teflon cable can easily be customized to increase length.

High Volume, high accuracy

The LSM250 model is aimed squarely at high volume applications that require high accuracy measurements below 450g capacities. Applications cover a very wide range of markets, such as syringe calibration, wire bond testing (in micro-electronics), medical tablet and pill weighing and capsule filling, food processing, batching systems, small scales, check-weighing systems, batching scales, counting scales, and mass flow meters.
