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 to 1000lb (23 to 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, and it also makes the installation process much easier, as there is no cable to rotate when the sensor is threaded into fixtures.

In addition, the LCM300 is also available in the original design, which features a cable connection with a 10-foot (3m) long 28 AWG 4 conductor braided shielded cable. This model can also be modified to suit OEM applications. FUTEK offers application and engineering resources during DFM/DFX stage upon request.

  • height: 13.2mm
  • diameter: 24.9mm
  • IP rating: IP67

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. 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.

Reducing error

A highly customized strain element has been designed to allow more strain measurement around the active sensor element, which reduces reproducibility errors from off-axis loads, and allows for an impressive 0.25% nonlinearity and hysteresis performance.

High stiffness

The precision of the LCM300 is also augmented by its stiffness, which leads to a very low deflection with some capacities as low as 0.001in.

Calibration included

The LCM300 has been tested by FUTEK’s world-class calibration department and is NIST traceable. We can also reduce hidden costs and setup time by calibrating your sensor with FUTEK electronics of your choice. In addition, we offer calibration to ANSI Z540-1 and ISO 17025 standards upon request.

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.

Plug in, plug out

The newer versions 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.

The 4-position micro cable connector is shown here with the keyed mating face to reduce mating errors. The image shows another model.

Eliminating moisture

The 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.

LCM300 connector

The 4-position micro cable connector is shown here on another sensor model.

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.

LCM300

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.

Best-in-class material

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