The 3120 can be used in applications such as Robotics End-Effectors, Variable Force Control, Load and Compression Sensing, Contact Sensing, and Weighing.
The 3120 incorporates MEAS’ proprietary Microfused™ technology which 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 traditional load cell designs providing excellent long term span and zero stability.
The FC22 measures direct force and is therefore not subject to lead-die fatigue failure common with competitive designs which use a pressure capsule embedded within a silicone gel-filled cavity. Operating at very low strains, Microfused™ technology provides an essentially unlimited cycle life expectancy, superior resolution, and high over-range capabilities.
The formula for converting SensorValue into lbs is:
F(lb) = SensorValue/70 - 10/7
- Range: 0 - 10 lbs
- Small Size, Low Noise
- Essentially Unlimited Cycle Life Expectancy
- Fast Response Time
