The FC22 series medium compression force sensor creates new markets previously unrealizable due to cost and performance constraints.
fc22 compression load cell

The FC22 offers normalized zero and span for interchangeability and is thermally compensated for changes in zero and span with respect to temperature. The FC22 incorporates MEAS’ proprietary sensor technology which employs micromachined silicon piezoresistive strain gages fused with high temperature glass to a high performance stainless steel substrate. TE sensor technology eliminates age-sensitive organic epoxies used in traditional load cell designs providing excellent long term span and zero stability. The FC22 measures direct force and is therefore not subject to lead-die fatigue failure common with competitive designs which use a pressure capsule embedded within a silicone gel-filled cavity. Operating at very low strains, TE sensors provide an essentially unlimited cycle life expectancy, superior resolution, and high over-range capabilities. Cost-optimization of the FC22 brings your OEM product to life whether you need thousands or millions of load cells annually.
