Description

The FC23 Series low cost compression force sensors create new markets previously unrealizable due to cost and performance constraints. This series raises the bar in price and performance. 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 classical 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 4 V. Microfused™ sensors are used in a variety of applications including bathroom scales, paint sprayers and safety-critical automotive brake sensors. Model FC23 is appropriate for use in all types of OEM weighing and force measurement applications where high reliability and accuracy are critical. From assembly line applications to high capacity printing presses, the FC23 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, our dedicated design team at our Load Cell Engineering Center is ready to provide you with custom designs for your OEM applications. The FC23 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 FC23 load cell.
