Our Load Cells are designed and engineered using our proprietary thin film strain gauge process for greater stability and accuracy.
SMD low profile load cell and force sensor applications include weighing scales, non-invasive medical sensors, pharmaceutical testing, aerospace, and industrial measurements.
SMD pressure sensors provide superior performance in a wide range of applications such as medical devices.
With our proprietary process, SMD can craft standard and custom pressure sensor designs with short lead times using nearly any material including aluminum, stainless steel, Hastelloy™ and sapphire.
Air-In-Line Sensors feature non-invasive bubble sensing technology to accurately detect any object passing through the line.
We manufacture an array of standard and custom non-invasive air-in-line sensors and air bubble detectors to fit your needs. Our proprietary digital “smart” circuits can be calibrated to detect bubbles in almost any fluid and tubing material.
Our flow meters feature high-precision flow measurements, working with the electronic FlowDAQ® module to measure low flow rates with excellent accuracy and turn-down ratios.
Our non-invasive and flow-through sensors are perfect for medical, life science, laboratory and industrial applications. SMD designs custom and standard products using engineered plastics or stainless steel.
SMD’s Scales feature precise thin film strain gauge technology, rugged construction, splash resistance, RF immunity, and overload protection.
Scales for applications like rugged medical reagent/waste with overload protection from side loads, tension and compression. Typical specialized requirements include small sizes, high temperature, low capacities, “Cenelec” dielectric, and overload protection.
SMD Sensors’ optical level switches provide an output that senses the presence or absence of fluid in a variety of tanks and vessels.
Compact and inexpensive solution for point level detection.Optical sensors offer reliability and cost-effectiveness solutions where precision is of greatest importance.
SMD offers off the shelf float switches and custom designed liquid level sensors – helping customers solve their toughest sensor and measurement problems.
Vertically and horizontally mounted fluid switches and float switches, custom multilevel fluid switches, combination level and temperature sensors, ultrasonic liquid level sensors, and optical level sensors. We supply to a diverse range of industries.
Approximately 90% of SMD products, across all our lines, are custom engineered to fit specific applications and aggressive cost targets.
The majority of SMD products are custom designed sensors, meeting the more specialized needs of OEMs. Strain Measurement Devices’ unrivaled engineering team supports product design, shortens development cycles, and provides production engineered solutions for unique requirements and aggressive cost targets.
SMD Sensors can customize a circuit board product for your needs.
We can offer almost any analog or digital protocol, including sensor I2C output, SPI, PWM, sensor USB output, 4-20mA load cell conditioning, 0-5V conditioning — along with wireless sensors utilizing Zigbee or Bluetooth.
SMD Sensors features both standard and custom devices that solve almost any sensor need across all markets.
