Integrated mechanical stops protect against accidental overloads up to 100 times F.S. The FN3280 provides a combination of economy and performance, this low cost load cell has an accuracy of 0.1% F.S.  For higher ranges, the model FN3148 can measurement loads from 10 N to 2 kN [2 to 400 lbf] with mechanical stops. With many years of experience as a designer and manufacturer of sensors, TE often works with customers to design or customize sensors for specific uses and testing environments. To meet your needs we also offer complete turnkey systems. The matched components (sensor, power, amplifier and digital display) are formatted, calibrated and ready for immediate use.
