    Product Description

     

    The MBA500 Torque and Thrust Bi-Axial Load Cell is design to measure reaction torque moments as well as tension and compression loads, all in one transducer. Temperature compensated and constructed of all aluminum, this torque/thrust sensor is able to achieve an impressive 0.2% nonlinearity and yet provide 150% (50 to 150 lb) 125% ((200 lb) over-capacity. Excellent performance and high precision are achieved through two separate outputs for applied torque and thrust forces. Force/Torque sensors are used throughout industry for product testing, robotic assembly, grinding and polishing. In research, our sensors are used in robotic surgery, haptics, rehabilitation, neurology and many others applications.

    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 counterclockwise direction. The MBA500 is compact weighing only 6.5 oz, and offers a compact design.

    This particular sensor can be modified or customized to meet your requirements and most capacities are in our inventory, making them available for quick delivery. Similar to our entire Multi-Component Load Cell product line this model is manufactured in USA and uses metal foil strain gauge technology. FUTEK has developed an Six-Axis Force/Torque Sensor that can be used for unique applications in all industries.

     

    Product Highlights:

    • Strain Gauge Based
    • Aluminum Construction
    • Weight: 6.5 oz
    • For those who are a looking for a complete system solution, FUTEK can provide both signal conditioned displays or our VCal Portable System. FUTEK’s VCal Portable System brings an easy-to-use system verification directly to the customer making it ideal for on-site verification and calibration of your products. FUTEK MBA Series is also available with TEDS / IEEE1451.4 option.
