The fundamental shape and construction of load cells has barely changed in decades. Even as strain gauge technology has advanced, and applications have grown, the basic solid metal beam has endured.
Brexit regulatory deadlines are fast approaching—starting January 1, 2023, UK CA certification will be required for all applications in potentially explosive atmospheres and/or hazardous locations. And VPG is ready! We’ve already secured UK CA certification for relevant applications.
Our unique EDOC coating provides long-lasting anti-corrosion protection for load cells. Here’s the story behind the innovation and how it’s been proven for 15 years.
VPG Force Sensors is the new brand name of VPG Transducers. We’re excited to introduce our new name, logo and tagline and tell you the story behind it all.
A solution based on a heavily modified version of a standard force sensor enables farmers to monitor in real time how much grain is being harvested. The highly accurate measurement data is correlated with GPS data to provide precise yield calculations by specific area.
Join Rob and Mark for a short explanation of how a strain gage load cell works
The Model 60001 is a tension-compression load cell with a humidity-resistant coating and shielded cables, which enable its use in harsh environments while maintaining operating specifications
A force sensor attached to the top of the x-ray plate of a mammography machine protects women by ensuring just the right amount of compression is exerted – enough to get the required clear image without causing unnecessary discomfort
