The Series MIN840, a miniature load cell from Stellar Technology, includes internal signal conditioning. With 0.15% accuracy, the force sensor measures both tension and compression forces with either high level analog output or digital output. Standard high level analog outputs are 4-20 mA, 0-5 Vdc, and 0-10 Vdc. Standard digital outputs are S232, RS485, CANbus (J-1939 and CANopen). The load cell ranges from 250 lbf. to 5000 lbf. From $450.
