Model LCM300 is a Inline Tension and Compression Miniature Load Cell built for Endurance, Press, or Inline applications. The standard LCM300 Threaded In Line Load Cell model has a very robust construction available in 17-4 Stainless Steel, with male threads on both ends and a 10 feet [3 meter] long 28 AWG 4 conductor shielded PVC cable. You will also find options rated for higher temperatures or chemical resistant Teflon cable readily available. For a higher capacity range please see the LCM325, LCM350, or LCM375.

The LCM300 Miniature Load Cell has Nonlinearity of ±0.25% and Deflection of 0.001” [0.03 mm] nominal. The standard LCM300 Tension and Compression Load Cell can be modified or customized to meet your requirements and most models are in our inventory making them available for 24-hour shipping.

Small, flexible, accurate

The LCM300 is a multi-dimensional miniature load cell that measures tension and compression loads in endurance, press, and inline applications that require a highly accurate sensor with a small footprint. It’s available in a wide range of capacities that range from 50 lb to 1000 lb [23 – 454 kg]. The standard LCM300 sensor can also be customized to meet your specific requirements.

The LCM300 is now offered with an integrated connector that makes it fully IP67 rated for high water resistance and temporary submersibility. The connectorized 4-position micro receptacle allows you to easily remove the cable from the sensor like a plug from a socket. This new feature protects the sensor from cable damage, as you can easily replace a faulty wire.

In addition, the LCM300 is also available in the original design, which features a cable connection with a 10 feet [3 m] long 28 AWG 4 conductor braided shielded cable. FUTEK can offer custom versions that are rated for vacuum/low outgassing, high or low operating temperatures, radiation environments, autoclavable, and high vibration/shock.

  • height: 12.7mm
  • diameter: 24.9mm
  • capacity: 50 lb to 1000 lb [23 – 454 kg]

Easy mounting options

The LCM300 has male threads on both ends for easy and flexible mounting options. Also, the compact design allows you to mount it in different locations, including for those applications with limited spaces.

Robust construction

The seam-welded stainless steel body provides outstanding strength and corrosion resistance and provides enhanced protection against physical damage in addition to withstanding other harsh environmental conditions. A special heat treatment process has been applied to the flexure to improve durability, extending the life-cycle of the sensor.

Plug in, plug out

The newer version of this series — including the entire 100 to 2500 lb [23 – 454 kg capacity range — feature the 4-position micro receptacle. This gives the load cell greater flexibility and durability, as a damaged or cut cable can now easily be replaced, saving the user time and resources.

Reducing error

A highly customized strain element strain element has been designed to allow more strain measurement around the active sensor element, which reduces reproducibility errors from off-axis loads.

Eliminating moisture

The seam-welded assembly process of the 4-position micro receptacle version eliminates moisture ingress through the connection location. With an IP67 rating, the product can withstand submersion in one meter of water for at least 30 minutes. This opens up more options for applications as it will allow outdoor usage in wet, rainy, or highly humid conditions.

Made to be accurate

The LCM300 delivers a remarkably high natural frequency (starting at 6.1 kHz and going up to 29 kHz) which provides a fast response time that benefits accuracy and cycle time reduction. The precision of the sensor is also augmented by its high stiffness, which leads to a very low deflection with some capacities as low as 0.001" [0.03 mm]. In addition, special design and manufacturing touches further enhance the sensor’s performance, such as a highly customized strain element that greatly reduces solder joints, increasing the sensor’s reliability.

Best-in-class material

The exceptional quality of this sensor makes it highly durable and reliable. Its body is made of space-grade 17-4 precipitation hardened stainless steel, which provides high strength, high hardness, and corrosion resistance over a wide temperature range.

Conductor Braided Shielded Clear PVC

A braided shield physically covers the signal wires while blocking any interference from stray magnetic and static electric fields. Additionally, the metallic load cell housing blocks all interference and unwanted environmental conditions that would reduce the accuracy and reliability.

Made in-house

Designed and manufactured in-house, using US-sourced materials. Our multidisciplinary engineering teams, high precision machining center, state-of-the-art quality assurance systems, and R&D and manufacturing facilities are all under one roof, allowing us to continuously reinvent and refine our products and processes.

Calibration included

Every single sensor we make is rigorously tested by FUTEK’s world class calibration department. We can also reduce your setup time by calibrating your sensor of choice with an amplifier.
