Miniature Load Button – New Miniature Load Button Load Cell Offered in Even Smaller Size

Irvine, CA, November 15, 2007 --( Futek Advanced Sensor Technology, Inc has expanded its Load Button Load Cell product line by adding the new miniature model: Miniature Load Button LLB130. The Miniature Load Button LLB130 is offered in 5, 10, 25, and 50 lbs capacity range with an outside diameter of 0.38” and an incredible height of 0.13”, which has now made the LLB130 the smallest load button load cell offered by Futek. The new model also offers several advantages besides its miniature size such as its high quality, accuracy, and internal compensation. The internal compensation offers a great benefit to customers who need to cut the cable since it won’t affect the temperature compensation or zero balance of the unit. Futek engineering lab has also utilized a custom proprietary strain gage for this model, ensuring that the highest quality requirements are met.

Although Miniature Load Buttons are not traditionally known for their high accuracy, Futek engineers have dispelled this concept by continuously improving the accuracy of this product. These load cells achieve great accuracy and stiffness with a Nonlinearity of ±0.5% and Deflection of 0.002” nominal. You will also find options for external matched output readily available. Typical applications include Press, Load Array, or Inline Compression Applications. The LLB130 Miniature Load Button is offered in 17-4 Stainless Steel.

If these standards don’t match your precise need, please contact Futek to see how they can customize this model for you. Futek Advanced Sensor Technology Inc. has an in house engineering and manufacturing team. Hence, they can modify any of their standard products (load cells, torque sensors, force sensors, pressure sensors, and instruments) or design a completely new model to meet your custom needs. Their team can help you meet your requirements for any test stand, process control application or low cost OEM requirements no matter what industry you’re in.
