Custom Sensors to Monitor Moisture In Agriculture
Market: Agricultural | Product Line: Load Cells
The Moisture Content Sensor is used to determine moisture contained in items through the use of a scale.
In need of a customized miniature device to measure moisture in objects as small as grains. Moisture sensors are operated on battery power and as a result needs a sensor with very low power consumption.
SMD Sensor Solution:
Strain Measurement Devices designed a custom S251 load cell, OEM sensor that is smaller than a standard device. In addition a custom mounting hardware was integrated for customer specific scale application and sensor overload protection provided.
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 operation procedures with confidence, therefore their instrument will survive well beyond it’s warranty specification.
