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...

KC-series Diaphragm Strain Gauges for Compressive- and/or Tensile-Force Transducers

BCM KC-series diaphragm strain gauges developed for Compressive- and/or Tensile-Force Transducers are now available with revised ordering code to facilitate the selection of the right strain gauge parameters for specific applications. One of the typical applications of KC-series diaphragm strain gauges is to produce button-shape load cells for compressive force measurement as shown on the picture.

NTC Thermistors from BCM SENSOR

BCM SENSOR is proud to present a new product group, NTC thermistors, available for batch production. NTC thermistors have negative temperature coefficient of resistance - their resistance decreases exponentially with their temperature increase. Thanks to the high sensitivity, the NTC thermistors are widely used as temperature detection and measurement, temperature compensation, and circuit protection in industrial and automotive applications as well as for general purpose. The NTC thermistors from BCM SENSOR are classified into 6 series: C-series: NTC thermistor chips; Read More...

Wireless Sensor Network System from BCM SENSOR

BCM SENSOR has recently successfully developed a wireless sensor network (WSN) system. This system contains several wireless sensors and a wireless network monitor, as shown below. This system is an independent system employing 2.4GHz RF technology for communication. Its communication range can reach ~100 meters through open space. This WSN system is designed for indicating whether the monitored force, load, or pressure is within a tolerance. The current system is integrated with load pins. This technology although can be used Read More...

Upgraded Design of Stacked Rosette for Stress Analysis

Compact Strain Gauge for Limited Bonding Area BCM SENSOR is proud to present an upgraded design of the CB-pattern stacked rosettes. This design has higher stability than the previous version and has the backing size minimized to 4 x 4 mm (of 1mm gauge length and 120Ω gauge resistance). The CB-pattern rosette has three gauge grids stacked together. The orientation of these tree grids is: -45°, 0°(*), and +45°, as shown in the picture below. (*): 0° refers to the orientation of Read More...

Three-way Manifold for Differential Pressure Transducers with Flange

BCM SENSOR is proud to present a new option of mechanical interface of BCM SENSOR differential pressure transducers - a three-way manifold mounted on the flange. The picture below shows one example of this new option on the model 160M.
