Stellar Technology introduces the subminiature series VLC856  compression load cells. Small in size – with diameters from 0.38” and heights of only 0.13” – these load cells deliver exceptional 0.50% accuracy for ranges from 10 to 1,000 lbf.  Micro-Welded stainless steel construction provides for a much more repeatable, reliable, and rugged product.

Standard output for the Model VLC856 is 2 mV/V and electrical termination consists of a 4-conductor Teflon cable with braided stainless-steel shielding and an integral temperature and zero balance board. The VLC856 is temperature compensated from 70°to 170°F, and the temperature effect on zero and span is minimal at 0.01%/°F, insuring reliable performance. These load cells have a standard operating temperature range of -40°to 250°F, with an optional operating range from -65°to 400°F offered.

These small but rugged units feature a static overload capacity of 150% (FSO) and are perfectly suited for a variety of demanding limited-space applications including medical robotics, components testing, semiconductor polishing (CMP), tactical feedback systems, infusion pumps, and orthopedic stimulation.
