Custom Sensors For Hardness Testing Machines

Market: Industrial | Product Line: Load Cells


The instrument pushes a probe into the surface of a material and calculates hardness by accurately measuring force and deflection.

Customer Challenge:

Customer needed a custom force range and assistance in developing custom lead outs.

SMD Sensor Solution:

Strain Measurement Devices produced a custom model S251 load cell offering high accuracy, with custom cables. Providing the customer new force range options.

Overload Protection: Strain Measurement Devices has designed an overload feature that prevents the load cell from deflection beyond it’s 200% maximum limit. This design allows the customer to write operating procedures with confidence that their instrument will survive beyond it’s warranty specification.
