PHOENIX, USA: Interface Inc. announced its new WMCP Overload Protected Stainless Steel Miniature Load Cell.
The WMCP miniature load cell model adds overload protection to the popular WMC family features of environmentally sealed, welded stainless steel housings, proprietary temperature-compensated strain gages and small load cell sizes for convenient mounting and machine integration.
WMCP load cells are available in capacities of 250 gf (0.55 lbf), 500 gf (1.1 lbf) and 1000 gf (2.2 lbf) in both tension and compression. This load cell can be overloaded by 32 times the rated load without damage to the sensor, protected by a dependable mechanical stop.
The Interface WMC load cell family of miniature force sensors offers a variety of options to address specific applications needing the slim design, the environmentally sealed stainless steel housing, or the wide capacity range. WMC model capacities start at 0.55 lbf (250 gf) with a 2mV/V output in a small 0.75” (19.05 mm) diameter housing. The largest WMC Rod End load cells offers capacities up to 200K lbf (890 kN) in a slim 4.47” (113.54 mm) diameter housing.
The WMC load cell family includes optional male or female threaded mounting for flexible design, replacement or retrofit application requirements. The environmentally sealed, welded stainless steel housing is compatible with extreme environments found in the oil and gas industry and other industrial applications exposed to corrosive materials.
“Our WMCP adds overload protection to our successful Interface miniature family of load cells for those low capacity applications where the load cell is greatly overloaded,” stated Ted Haller, President, Interface Inc., who went on to say, “Our Miniature products follow the Interface tradition offering precision and durability.”
