FD101 Force Sensor Dies for Multiple Applications of Force Measuring

FD101 force sensor die features a footprint of only 1.3mm x 1.3mm and possesses a full Wheatstone bridge circuit of 2.4 kΩ bridge resistance. The four resistors of the Wheatstone bridge circuit are oriented as shown in the picture below to form the pattern which is similar o EB-series metal foil strain gauges from BCM SENSOR. Such the pattern makes the FD101 sensor die suitable for measuring force on the various structures, e.g., bending beam, column beam, etc. Thanks to MEMS Read More...

158A Force Transducer of Ultra-Low Profile

158A force transducer is developed for applications which need to measure low force (down to 0.7N) or to monitor small displacement. Thanks to the metal foil strain gauge technology, temperature change over the operating temperature range a very limited effect on the output of 158A. Another good news is that recently the capacity of 158A has been broadened up to 20N. 158A offers the following benefits: • Capacity from 0.7N to 20N; • Accuracy up to 1%fs; • Excellent stability and reliability; • Compact design.

5716 Wireless Load Pins for Tension Force Monitoring on Ratchet Tie-Down Straps

Ratchet Tie-Down Straps (RTS) have been widely used in truck cargo transportation as shown in the photo below. To improve the safety in cargo transportation, BCM SENSOR has developed the 5716 wireless load pin (WLP) to replace the bolt of the traditional  RTS, as shown below, so that the RTS can monitor the tension force on the strap. Several such tension monitoring RTS (TMRTS) or 5716 WLP can work with one WSN1000 monitor from BCM SENSOR to form a Wireless Tension-Detect-and-Alert Read More...

LV36 Liquid Level Sensor with Filter

Recently BCM SENSOR has successfully updated the design of LV36 liquid level sensors. In this new design, a filter has been integrated into the cap of the sensor, located right behind the inlet of pressure medium of the cap. This filter feature specially targets to applications in which pressure medium may have particles, e.g., river water with sediments. For such the applications, this feature can prolong the service period of the sensor without maintenance and can provide a better protection Read More...

6991 Compact S-Type Force Transducers with Overload-Protection

Model 6991 S-type force transducer from BCM SENSOR is specially designed for applications in which overload may occur much higher (e.g., 5 times) than the rated capacity of a force transducer. As an S-type force transducer, the 6991 can measure either tension or compression forces, and it is widely used for material test and for process control. 6991 offers the benefits as follows: • Capacity: 50N, …, 20kN; • Accuracy up to 0.1%fs; • a TEDS (transducer electronic data sheet) chip available on request; • Read More...

119B Diaphragm-Type Force Transducers for Tension or Compression Force Measurement

BCM SENSOR recently has launched a new developed diaphragm-type force transducer, model 119B, for either tension force or compression force measurement. To realize this, the 119B transducer possesses two threads at its top and bottom, respectively, which provide connections when this transducer is installed for application. Thanks to the diaphragm-type design, the 119B transducers to have higher resistance to eccentric loading, compared to the S-type force transducers. 119B offers the benefits as follows: • Capacity: 50N, …, 10kN; • Accuracy up to 0.5%fs; • TEDS Read More...

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...
