The Nano’s unique M1-threaded double-sided mounting provisions allow it to measure both tension and compression, an industry breakthrough for a sensor this small. It can also be mounted to only measure compression. Unique mounting flexibility In addition to the front end mounting provisions, the Nano also features a patent-pending thru-hole design, which mounts over a shaft as a monolithic structure. Multiple measuring capabilities The in-line micro rod/rope thru-hole configuration with an M1 mounting provision allows for both tension and compression force measurement. Bottom-mounted compression In this configuration, the sensor is installed onto the mounting plate and top. When integrated this way, the Nano measures compression force only. The subminiature size doesn’t compromise the Nano’s performance. It meets FUTEK’s highest accuracy standards and meets the benchmark for precision for all our products. Low power consumption The Nano is an energy saver. Its 1000 Ohm resistance full-bridge strain gauge instrumentation supports low power consumption, opening the door for battery-powered mobile device applications as well energy-conscious configurations with large quantities of sensors per system. Born ready As soon as you turn it on, the Nano is ready to go. Its full bridge instrumentation allows for 5V excitation without extensive warmup time, a key capability for applications where system readiness is a critical factor. Made for R&D A Flextail adapter converts the Nano’s OEM-friendly four conductor flex cable into a conventional cable, eliminating the need for additional electronics in initial development integration.
