FX1901 data sheet - .PDF file.

Variohm Eurosensor has released a packaged compression loadcell from Measurement Specialities (MEAS) that combines MEMs strain-gauge sensor technology with high-volume manufacturing techniques to provide force sensing for a new class of ’smart’ consumer-appliance, business-equipment and medical-product applications.

The usage possibilities for the device include appliance payload and balance monitoring for domestic washers and dryers, power and user weight indication for chiropractic and exercise equipment, load feedback for patient hoists and physical-therapy devices, and hand-tool force output. 

Available  in four standard load ranges from 0–44N to 0–444N, the FX1901 has a compact ’coin cell’ package that measures less than 30mm in diameter with a button-style concentrator tip and anti-rotational mounting.
