The subminiature series VLC856 compression load cells are small in size with diameters from 0.38 in. and heights of only 0.13 in. These load cells deliver 0.5% 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 2.0 mV/V and electrical termination consists of a four-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, ensuring 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 units feature a static overload capacity of 150% (FSO) and are perfectly suited for a variety of demanding limited-space applications.
