725F High Pressure Transducers for Hydraulic Chocks of Mining machines

BCM SENSOR has recently launched a new model 725F high pressure transducer. This model is specially designed for hydraulic chocks of longwall mining machines. In this underground mining application, the automatic hydraulic chocks work as the powered roof support so that shearers can work efficiently and safely beneath the roof. This 725F transducer can be used to control and monitor the high pressure of the hydraulic system of chocks. The model 725F has its pressure diaphragm and sensor body made Read More...

670F Mono-block Pressure Sensors for High Pressure Applications

Model 670F pressure sensor is developed for high pressure applications, from 400bar to 5000bar. It employs mono-block structure, i.e., its pressure diaphragm and sensor body are machined from one piece of stainless steel. Thanks to this mono-block structure, there is no O-ring integrated inside this sensor to seal pressure medium. As a result, the model 670F can offer excellent reliability in high pressure applications. This model is one of 600F-series (e.g., 664F(a) and 664F(c)). The sensors of this series make Read More...

Miniature Full-Bridge Semiconductor Strain Gauges for Force Sensors

BCM SENSOR has successfully develpled a full-bridge semiconductor strain gauge of miniature footprint (only 1.3mm x 1.3mm) as a sensor chip for force measurement. Thanks to MEMS technology, such sensor chip can realize bridge resistance up to 5kΩ. As shown in the picture below, the chip features the gauge pattern similar to EB-series metal foil strain gauges from BCM SENSOR, and has 5 solder pads as open-bridge configuration. With this sensor chip, the dimensions of force sensors can be reduced significantly. For Read More...

Termination of Thermal Gas Flow Sensors

To focus on the market where BCM SENSOR has been playing an important role, we have terminated the production line of Thermal Gas Flow Sensors since the end of 2018. In 2019, BCM SENSOR will apply new strategy and focus on our most important product lines, e.g., strain gauges, pressure sensors and liquid level sensors. To implement this new strategy, BCM SENSOR has decided not to process any received inquiry for flow sensors from now on. This means that the flow Read More...

Wireless Force Transducer for Smart Ratchet Tie-down Strap – Cargo Safety Applications

To improve safety level of cargo transportation, the smart ratchet tie-down strap is developed to recognize if the strap around cargo is tightened or is getting loose. To make the ratchet smart, BCM SENSOR developed a wireless force transducer (load pin) to replace the bolt on the traditional ratchet and to measure the tensile force on the strap. As the strap can be used outdoor, the wireless force transducer is designed without any external antenna or on-off switch, to fulfill Read More...
