FUTEK’s series of LSM load cells, or force sensors, are side mounted load cell with a single point design that are specifically made for OEM applications that require high precision or high volume production. These strain gauged based force sensors measure tension and compression and are also known as compact parallelogram sensors, or single point load cells or beam load cell.
The lightweight design and easy side mounting make these load cells particularly easy to assemble into the housing of OEM applications (OEM Load Cells). Built-in overload protection allows these durable force sensors to withstand over 10 times the capacity that could occur during installation. One of the potential applications of this model is 3D printer filament runout sensor, amongst others.
The models, which are available in aluminum and stainless steel, can be modified or customized to meet your requirements. Most standard capacities are in stock in our inventory, making them available for 24 hour shipping.
