The FC22 series medium compression force sensor creates new markets previously unrealizable due to cost and performance constraints.
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.
Within traditional and smart pump applications, sensors
are key components in controlling and monitoring infusion
pumps. They are designed to provide occlusion detection,
monitor fluid flow, provide feedback for motor control and, in
some instances, sense the temperature of the IV fluid being
Human bodies and the medical devices that support them rely on liquids to flow continuously without interruption. Sensors are embedded in a variety of medical pump and flow applications and are utilized to confirm continuous and accurate flow, detect occlusions and bubbles in IV lines, and measure liquid levels.
