SMD Introduces Tiny Universal Load Cell
Strain Measurement Devices, Inc. has announced the development of the S610 Micro-S Cell, a high stability, universal S-type load cell which measures tension and compression. Capacities vary from 100 grams through 50 kg. The stainless steel S610 sensor is one of the smallest "S" shaped load cells ever created, and is intended for use in operations requiring extremely small size and/or low mass including medical instruments, bag weighing, scales, force measurement, animal research and other force and weight applications.
The S610 includes a flat compression mode fitting for compression loading as well as #4-40 threaded holes for tension loading. Strain relief for the cable is provided by a stainless steel spring.
SMD's proprietary thin-film strain gauge technology provides
less than one percent per year drift, as well as extremely low power consumption (5,000W bridge). The S610's unique design provides up to 1000% full-scale overload protection. Optional accessories and hardware are available.
Established in 1979, SMD is devoted exclusively to the design
and manufacture of custom and standard precision strain gauged sensors for the medical, OEM transducer, instrumentation, and measurement markets. Supplying leading-edge sensor technology to transducer manufacturers by producing thin-film sensing elements and sub-assemblies to integrate into finished products, the SMD engineering and development staff support product design, shortened development cycles, and provideproduction engineered solutions involving force and pressure sensors.
SMD's recently improved website, www.smdsensors.com, offers
specifying engineers and buyers a colorful, comprehensive, interactive site featuring a complete selection of stock and customized force and pressure sensors.
Photographs, schematic drawings and comprehensive details about each model, including applications, special features and key specifications are conveniently available. A four-page capabilities brochure can be requested by e-mail.
