FUTEK Offers Load Cell with USB Output
Irvine, CA, October 21, 2008 --(PR.com)-- FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc. is pleased to present its LSB200 S-Beam Jr. Load Cell with a brand new USB Digital Interface with 16 bits resolution. With this improvement, FUTEK has once again shown its innovation by becoming one of the first Sensor manufacturers to offer a USB type solution for Strain Gage Based Load Cells. FUTEK’s USB Sensor Solution provides an easy “Plug & Play” with basic software making the System Integration even simpler.

The Miniature S Beam Load Cell has become one of the signature products in the FUTEK Load Cell Series. This model is widely used in Medical Bag Weighing Applications as well as automated feed back control and inline processing applications. The perfect mixture of size, accuracy and of course the assurance of an overload protection feature makes this one of their most sought after models. With a height of only 0.75”, the LSB200 Miniature S Beam Load Cell is a great selection where tight environments or space is a challenge. The Standard LSB200 Miniature S Beam Load Cell model has female threads, comes in 2024 Aluminum construction (10 gram - 10 lb) or 17-4 Stainless Steel (25 lbs – 100lbs), and a 5 ft 29 AWG 4 conductor shielded silicone cable. It is also available in metric threads.

With all of its design features the Miniature S Beam Load Cell has a high accuracy with a Nonlinearity of ±0.1%, deflection of 0.005” nominal and an operating temperature of -60° F to 200° F. Similar to our entire Load Cell product line this model is manufactured in the U.S. and uses metal foil strain gauge technology.
