Honeywell Sensing and Control Announces The Model MPB Family of High-Capacity Compression Load Cells
Columbus, Ohio, July 29, 2004 -- Honeywell [NYSE: HON] Sensing and Control announces the Model MPB Family of high-capacity compression load cells from its Sensotec Test and Measurement business. With a small footprint (1 in. to 14 in. high, 1.25 to 10 in. dia.) and rugged, all-welded stainless steel construction, these cells suit demanding industrial applications characterized by extreme loads, limited space, tough environmental conditions, and a need for precision measurement.

Ranges are from 2,000 lb to 3 million lb; accuracy is 1 0.25% F.S. Standard output is 2 mV/V; other available outputs are 0-5 VDC, 0-10 VDC, and 4-20 mA. The MPB family tolerates temperatures from -65 to 250:F. Options include submersible connectors and cabling and operating temperature up to 400:F.

Model MPB load cells are used to check pressure in rolling mills, monitor mooring lines on oil platforms, and gauge the load on hydraulic presses. These rugged load cells also weigh ladles of molten steel and measure rocket thrust.

As with all Honeywell Sensotec sensors, custom sizes and ranges of the Model MPB are available to accommodate specific applications. (800-848-6564, fax 614-850-1111, www.honeywell.com/sensotec)
