FX1901 Compression Load Cell

The low-cost load cells from TE Connectivity enable force sensing in a whole new class of "smart" consumer and medical products

Image of TE Connectivity FX1901 Compression Load CellTE Connectivity Measurement Specialties' FX1901 units are intended for OEM use in laboratory, hospital, or consumer product applications, establishing a breakthrough in price and performance value for compression load cells. The FX1901 is a 1% load cell device with full scale ranges of 10, 25, 50, or 100 and 200 lbf compression. This low-cost technology enables force sensing in a whole new class of "smart" consumer and medical products. MEAS’ proprietary Microfused™ technology, derived from demanding aerospace applications, employs micro-machined, piezoresistive strain gages fused with high-temperature glass to a high-performance, stainless-steel force measuring flexure.

Microfused technology eliminates age-sensitive organic epoxies used in traditional load cell designs, providing excellent long-term span and zero stability. Operating at very low strains, Microfused technology provides an essentially unlimited cycle life expectancy, superior resolution, high overrange capabilities, and a ratiometric span of 20 mV/V. The combination of stamped flexures and micro-miniaturized MEMs strain gages permit low costs to be achieved in high-volume OEM applications ranging from disposable medical devices to durable appliances and exercise equipment.
