Miniature load cell

Paul Boughton

Celsum Technologies is launching the DEMS load cell, a miniature stainless steel load cell designed for automotive and aerospace applications - but with many more uses.

It is offered with full scale ranges of 500N and 1kN (100 and 200lbf); the units will perform in tension and compression and they are available with a choice of mechanical connections (both male or female threads), and can be supplied with electrical connections to the precision bonded strain gauge or with a built-in analogue amplifier which will give an output scaled to between 0.5 and 4.5V DC.

The DEMS transducer, manufactured from 17-4PH stainless steel and sealed to IP67, is highly responsive, with a bandwidth of 10kHz. It also has an operating temperature range of -20 to +120 degrees C, is temperature compensated between 0 and +70 degrees C, runs off of a DC voltage supply between 8V and 16V, and is suitable for many static and dynamic applications.

A full range of digital and analogue signal conditioning electronics is also available, and Celsum Technologies is always happy to consider modifications for special applications.
