This is a medium compression force sensor that offers normalized zero and span for interchangeability and is thermally compensated for changes in those with respect to temperature.
This unit handles 50 lbf (222.4 N).
It uses MEAS’ proprietary microfused technology, which employs micromachined silicon piezo resistive strain gages fused with high temperature glass to a stainless steel substrate.
Microfused technology eliminates age-sensitive organic epoxies used in traditional load cell designs, so it's got an excellent long term life span!
This unit measures direct force and is therefore not subject to lead-die fatigue failure common with similar units containing a pressure capsule embedded within a silicone gel-filled cavity.
Operating at very low strains, Microfused technology provides an essentially unlimited cycle life expectancy, superior resolution, and high over-range capabilities.
