The UF is a low-profile tension/compression load cell manufactured by BCM Sensor. This device is intended for hanging scales and force testers where either compression or tension force is measured. This load cell functions with sensors using the double beam working principle. A complete Wheatstone bridge circuit is applied in these sensors. The UF offers an accuracy rate of 0.1 % fs and it can handle loads form 1 kg up to 2500 N. The normal output signal is millivolt signal (2 mV/V) from the Wheatstone bridge circuit. It can also come with output signals from 4-20 mA or 0.5-4.5 V upon request. It is available in two different versions. The first version is constructed with aluminum alloy with anodized treatment while the other one has a 17-4PH stainless steel build. Both units offer an IP 65 level of protection.
