The FBB and FSB S-Beam or Z-Beam load-cells from Aptifirst are precision load cells with applications such as for tensile testing machines, laboratory test rigs, proofing, weigh hoppers, sports technology, dynamometers, actuator control systems, force meters and many others. Based on 350-ohm strain gauge technology, these force transducers have excellent accuracy and stability, and may have an excitation voltage applied of from 5V to 15V AC or DC. The FBB and FSB load-cells are available in ranges from 0-25N to 0-50kN, and are precision-engineered from aluminium alloy or stainless steel, depending on the load capacity. Supplied as standard with threaded fixing holes, a range of fixtures and fittings are available upon request, as are special-to-type cable lengths and connectors to suit specific applications. The load cells may be supplied sealed, depending on the model, from IP54 to IP67. Sensitivity is 2.5mV/V, maximum error is 0.05% of full scale output (FSO), non-repeatability is 0.02% FSO, creep over 20 minutes is ±0.03% FSO. The FBB and FSB have a safe overload capacity of 150%, and an ultimate overload capacity of 300%.
