The Perfect Load Cell Package
FUTEK offers a miniature panel mount Load Cell with easy installation

FUTEK is proud to announce the release of their latest product development in their load cell line the: LPM200 Panel Mount Load Cell. The LPM200 Panel Mount Load Cell is a model from FUTEK's miniature Sensors line. As an extra feature, this model may also be offered with a USB output option.

The Panel Mount Load Cell (LPM200) offers distinct advantage in its miniature size, a robust flexure and low capacity of 10 gram to 5 lbs. A common challenge for low capacity sensors is the damage the sensor can incur during installation. With the LPM200's design, this challenge has been greatly minimized. Furthermore, the product features an overload protection of 1000% (note that this percentage is not a typo and we do mean 1000%) of Rated Output for all the capacities (10 grams to 5 lbs). The installation of the product also became a critical design focus for FUTEK Engineers. By threading the flexure, the LPM200 can easily be installed for usage. The LPM200 uses a tough #28 AWG 4 Conductor Braided Shielded Clear PVC cable but as an extra feature, this model may also be offered with a USB output option.

The LPM can easily be threaded onto a platform during installation. The product was built for a diverse range of applications such as fiber tensile force measurement or automated feedback control systems. The LPM200 is a model from FUTEK's miniature Sensors line with a diameter of 0.75 inch and height of 2.09 inch. The load cell has a high accuracy with an operating temperature of -67° F to 221° F.

With all of its design features this Miniature Panel Mount Load Cell is suitable for critical applications involving tight or limited space. This model also has a nonlinearity starting at 0.1%, deflection of 0.005" nominal. This Panel Mount Load Cell can be modified or customized to meet your requirements and most capacities are in our inventory making them available for 24 hour shipping. Similar to our entire Load Cell product line the LPM200 model is manufactured in the US and uses metal foil strain gauge technology.
