The new MBA500 torque and thrust biaxial load cells from Futek are designed
to measure reaction torque moments as well as tension and compression loads,
all in one transducer.
Featuring an all-aluminium construction, the temperature compensated torque/
thrust sensor is able to achieve an impressive 0.2% non-linearity while
providing 150% (22.7 to 68 kg)/ 125% (90.7 kg) over-capacity. Two separate
outputs for applied torque and thrust forces drive excellent performance and
high precision in the sensor.
Futek’s new force/torque sensors are used throughout industry for
product testing, robotic assembly, grinding and polishing. In research, the
sensors are used in robotic surgery, haptics, rehabilitation and neurology among
many more. The MBA500 torque and thrust biaxial sensor offers an excellent
solution for measuring loads in tension and compression as well as torque in
clockwise and counter-clockwise direction.
Key features of Futek’s MBA500 torque and thrust biaxial sensors include
compact form, weighing only 6.5 oz; metal foil strain gauge technology; and
design allowing modification or customisation to meet diverse requirements.
The sensor’s customisation flexibility is supported by Futek’s
inventory, making them available in various capacities for quick delivery; the entire
multi-component load cell product line is also in stock for prompt supply.
For those seeking a complete system solution, Futek can provide both
signal conditioned displays or VCal portable systems. Futek’s VCal portable
system brings system verification directly to the customer for on-site
verification and calibration of products. Futek MBA Series is also available
with TEDS/ IEEE1451.4 option.
