Load Cells & Sensors- Why Accuracy Matters

High-quality load cells and sensors are important for applications in many industries. If absolute accuracy is critical for your design, choosing the right load cell is important. Here is a closer look at the critical factors required for accuracy and how load cells operate. SMD Sensors offers standard load cell sensor designs, available in a wide range of capacities, from milligrams to thousands of pounds — with multiple sensor models offering built-in overload protection through deflection stops. SMD engineers also have the ability to produce custom load cell sensors, these load cell sensors can withstand high temperature, pressure, humidity, etc.

Virus Testing Tools Feature Bubble Sensors For Biochemical Applications

Experimental chemists, biologists, and medical scientists often seek to measure the presence of small molecules within their solutions. Doing so allows for testing a wide variety of different medical hypotheses. This important research depends on repeatable and highly accurate medical devices and analytical instruments. As fluid flows through these instruments, there is a potential for bubbles to form in the fluid. Bubbles may be caused by small leaks at connections or from outgassing if the device or instrument applies heat to the fluid.

Autoclavable Sensors In Life Critical Applications

What does it mean when saying “Autoclavable Sensors”? Autoclavable devices require compatibility with high heat, moisture and often bleach or other high pH fluids. Medical devices that come in contact with human tissues or fluids are considered to be high-risk devices and they require sterilization so they must undergo autoclave processes after each procedure. Hygenic medical devices that require autoclave operations might include surgical staplers, surgical robots, handheld surgical devices, dental tools, medical examination procedures.
