Description

The FC22 Series low cost compression load cells create new markets previously unrealizable due to cost and performance constraints. This series provides a new level of performance at very low cost. Measurement Specialties’ proprietary Microfused™ technology, derived from demanding aerospace applications, employs micromachined silicon piezoresistive strain gages fused with high temperature glass to a high performance stainless steel substrate. Microfused™ technology eliminates age-sensitive organic epoxies used in traditional load cell designs providing excellent long term span and zero stability. Operating at very low strains, Microfused™ technology provides gage factors greater than 100, an essentially unlimited cycle life expectancy, superior resolution, exceedingly high over-range margins without the need for stops and a ratiometric span of up to 4V. Microfused™ sensors are used in a variety of applications including bathroom scales, paint sprayers and safety-critical automotive stability control. Measurement Specialties’ model FC22 is appropriate for use in all types of OEM weighing and force measurement applications where high reliability and accuracy are critical. From appliance controls to biomechanical force feedback, FC22 is the OEM designer’s dream-come-true: cost-optimized to bring your OEM products to life whether you need thousands or millions of load cells annually. Although the standard model is ideal for a wide range of applications, the design team at our Load Cell Engineering Center can provide custom designs for your OEM applications. The FC22 is fully thermally compensated for changes in zero and span with respect to temperature and offer normalized zero and span for interchangeability. Consult Measurement Specialties for uncompensated super low cost variants of the FC22 load cell.
