Load Cells - Visit our website

Acam Instrumentation has a variety of Load Cells that use semiconductor, foil and ceramic technology. We give our customers the power to define the mechanical interface and electrical connections, in order that they get an instrument that's perfect for their application. Load cells are available in Shear Beam, Double Bending Beam, Bobbin and Cantilever formats, with temperature ranges of up to 200°C to special order. Our load cells offer excellent repeatability and stability with low temperature coefficients. Loads cells using foil technology are typically used for achieving the most accurate results, whilst those using semiconductors provide the highest output. Ceramic technology is particularly useful in specialised applications.

Torque Cells - Visit our website

We also supply Torque Cells that use foil or semiconductor technology. Like Load Cells, Torque Cells that use foil technology offer the best accuracy, while semiconductor technology provides the highest output. Torque Sensors and Transducers are made in either torque tube technology or bending beam technology. Electrical interface can only be a flying lead or a plug, but our customers are able to choose which mechanical interface they prefer. All of our Torque Cells have been manufactured to the highest quality and offer incredible performance – that's why they have been used in some of the most demanding applications in the Military, Medical and Industrial sectors.

Temperature Sensors - Visit our website

Acam Instrumentation supplies a wide range of Temperature Sensors that use platinum resistance elements, thermistors, or thermocouples. Sensors are tailor-made to the customer's requirements in terms of thread, diameter, length and electrical interface. We can also supply amplified versions to special order. Acam Instrumentation Ltd is committed to top-quality, high-performing products and an exceptional standard of customer service. If you need any help or assistance, we would be delighted to be of service. Just give us a call!

Strain Gauging Service - Visit our website

As well as supplying a wide range of measurement instruments, Acam Instrumentation offers a professional strain gauging service. Provide us with your metal work and we'll measure the strain as required. The most accurate results are accomplished using strain gauges with foil technology. Where higher output is required or where size is important, we'll use semiconductor strain gauges. If you would like to find out more about our strain gauging service, please follow the link to the Acam Instrumentation website, or get in touch directly. We’re always happy discuss your needs.

Strain Gauges - Visit our website

If measuring the strain of metal work is a constant feature of your operations, the more cost-effective option is to invest in your own strain gauges. We can supply semiconductor or ceramic strain gauges. Strain Gauges that use semiconductor technology are backed with a polyimide material which makes them as easy to use as foil strain gauges. They are available as 1000 ohm units for general strain gauging or as 40 ohm units for foil compensation applications. If you're looking to save on costs, Ceramic Strain Gauges may be the better option. These can be configured to suit the customer's application requirements.
