Variohm EuroSensor has increased its range of high capacity load cells with the new HM9J series from its exclusive distribution partner Zemic.
The International Organization of Legal Metrology-approved load cell has a rated capacity of 15t, 20t and 30t for C2.5 accuracy, and could be used for weighing race cars, for brake pedal force measurement or on-board vehicles.
Its IP68 protection class and hermetically sealed nickel plated alloy steel construction provides maximum durability for harsh outdoor conditions and the generous specification includes a Y value of 15,000 for exceptionally high reliability.
Meanwhile, the company is now stocking a selection of piezo thin film sensor products from Measurement Specialties. Piezo films offer unique transducer capabilities, producing voltage in proportion to compressive or tensile mechanical stress and strain. They provide a compact and reliable solution as low-cost dynamic strain gauges, vibration sensors, accelerometers or dynamic switch elements. It is also ideally suited to high fidelity transducers operating throughout the high audio (>1kHz) and ultrasonic (up to 100MHz) ranges.
