101B(a19F) Flush-Diaphragm Pressure Sensor

For applications where customers need to measure pressure of viscous media or media with particles, and especially applications that involve cleaning process, we have developed a complete flush diaphragm sensor 101B(a19F) based on BCM standard pressure sensor model 101B(a19G). This new sensor model has a structure that doesn’t deposit residuals of pressure media. Typical applications: • Process control systems • Industrial controls • Hydraulic and pneumatic controls • Pressure transducers and transmitters • Pressure calibrators Key specifications: • Complete flush diaphragm • Pressure reference & ranges: Gauge: -1, 0.1, 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...

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.

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. The new option can also be applied on any other BCM SENSOR differential pressure transducers or transmitters which can be equipped with the flange. The three-way manifold offers the following benefits: Onsite installation and maintenance of the transducer; Onsite zero offset Read More...

Upgraded Backing Materials of BCM SENSOR Metal Foil Strain Gauges

BCM SENSOR has recently successfully upgraded the backing materials of metal foil strain gauges. Now the options of backing material are FIBA: F: advanced phenolic resin I: modified polyimide resin B: laminated polyetherketone A: laminated phyimide Thanks to this upgrade, the number of backing material options have been reduced from 6 to 4, but the working temperature range of the strain gauges can still cover a wide range of -195~+200°C. BCM SENSOR will continue providing to you the high-quality strain Read More...

Pressure Sensors of Flexible and Reliable Electrical Interface

BCM SENSOR is proud to present two new options of pressure sensors which are integrated with flexible flat cable (FFC). As an example, this newsletter announces the newly released ceramic pressure sensors of the two options, as shown in the picture below.               Such the FFC features excellent flexibility and weldability, resulting in easy handling and reliable electrical interface of the pressure sensors. The difference between these two options of FFC is their insulation material. The yellow insulation material is Kapton, while Read More...

High-Resistance Strain Gauges to Lower Your Power Consumption

BCM SENSOR has recently succeeded to manufacture the single-grid linear strain gauge of 5000Ω resistance in a compact size (*). (*): Gauge length: 4mm; Backing dimensions (width x length): 5.6mm x 8.5mm. Such high-resistance strain gauges are specially demanded in the applications of low power consumption, for instance the applications of battery-powered devices or systems such as the wireless sensors and wireless sensor networks, and remote or portable testing equipment. Moreover, the bridge circuit of the high-resistance strain gauges can permit higher excitation Read More...
