Featuring 2 mV/V of standard output, model VLU850 has minimal span at 0.01%/°F and is temperature compensated from 70 to 170°F.



Original Press Release:



New Subminiature Tension-Compression Load Cells



(June 2009, Amherst, NY) Stellar Technology introduces the new subminiature series VLU850 tension/compression load cells. In spite of their small size - with diameters from 0.50" and heights from 0.31" - these load cells deliver exceptional 0.50% accuracy for ranges from 10 to 1,000 lbf. Micro-Welded stainless steel construction provides for a repeatable, reliable, and rugged product.

Standard output for the Model VLU850 is 2 mV/V and electrical termination consists of a 4-conductor Teflon cable with braided stainless-steel shielding and an integral temperature and zero balance board. The VLU850 is temperature compensated from 70° to 170°F, and the temperature effect on zero and span is minimal at 0.01%/°F, insuring reliable performance. These load cells have a standard operating temperature range of -40° to 250°F, with an optional operating range from -65° to 400°F offered.

These small but rugged units feature a static overload capacity of 150% (FSO) and are perfectly suited for a variety of demanding and limited-space applications including medical robotics, components testing, biomedical research, flight control systems, structural testing, infusion pumps, and orthopedic stimulation. The Model VLU850 is available now, with prices starting at $550.
