Measurement Specialties enables OEMs to measure force using Microfused™ load cells. The same proprietary piezoresistive silicon strain gage technology used to measure pressure can also be configured into a reliable, low-cost package to measure force. The flexible technology allows us to design tension, compression, or both into one simple, inexpensive construction.
Features of our Microfused™ force sensors (load cells) include low cost, small size, low noise, robust design, high reliability and fast response time. Microfused™ load cells are used in consumer, medical and industrial applications such as medical pumps and monitors, robotics, compression sensing, variable tension control, seat occupancy detection and appliances.
We offer customization for high volume applications.
