Tecsis Force & Load Cells

Load cells and force sensors from dpstar include compression load cells in industry-standard donut and through-hole designs, low profile ‘pancake’ models, and robust canister configurations. We offer in-line and rod end load cells, shackle and load pins, cantilever beams, single point load cells, and universal load cells to measure both tension and compression. We also offer shaft-or flange-mount reaction torque sensors, each one fine-tuned to your specifications.

Our technical know-how and manufacturing capabilities enable dpstar to provide standard, modified, or completely custom products to mesh with your applications needs. We can build miniatures, submersibles, or use exotic materials like MONEL®, INCONEL® or HASTELLOY® alloys, and we offer a complete selection of electrical output, measuring range, and accuracy.

Bending beam, or cantilever, load cells are rugged and highly accurate and suitable for a wide variety of both static and dynamic applications. The bending beam design measures loads and forces with ±0.1% accuracy (FSO, combined) over ranges from 25 grams to 10,000 lbs. Standard output is mV/V, with in-line amplification available.

Compression load cells combine welded stainless steel construction and proven strain gage technology to deliver long term stability and repeatable performance. These robust, reliable and cost effective load cells are the ideal solution for critical high capacity applications.

From our heavy duty high accuracy canister load cells to our popular ‘button’ style miniatures, every compression load cell we manufacture is designed with your needs in mind. We offer ranges from a few grams to millions of pounds, analog or digital output, in-line amplification, a variety of mating and cable assemblies, and mounting options as unique as your application

Strain gauge based load cells are suitable for use in a wide range of industries. Due to their extraordinary variety and flexibility of design, they can handle the most diverse and challenging applications. They are very often the most cost-effective and efficient solutions to challenges requiring durable, dependable, and precise force measurement.

Strain gauge based load cells convert a force into a measurable electrical signal. Their function is based on the piezoresistive effect: the ability of the strain gauges to change their resistance value in response to the physical deformation of a material caused by force. By wiring the strain gauges in a Wheatstone bridge arrangement, these small changes in resistance can be exploited to give rise to a precise electrical signal proportional to the applied force. When the Wheatstone bridge is coupled with a specially engineered metal element body, a load cell is born. Also following careful compensation for temperature changes and precise testing, it is ready for success in the field.

Load cells are found in a vast array of design styles: button compression, universal, S-type, donut, cantilever, pancake, rod end, tension link, and countless others. Often used in weighing applications, test stands, and as safety/monitoring devices, load cells play an important role in the areas of assembly, manufacturing, construction, aerospace, calibration, and more. They are capable of measuring forces as small as a few grams or as large as a million pounds.

Our RTD Sensor

RTDs – or Resistance Temperature Detectors – are temperature sensors that contain a resistor that changes resistance value as its temperature changes. They have been used for many years to measure temperature in laboratory and industrial processes, and have developed a reputation for accuracy, repeatability, and stability.

Most RTD elements consist of a length of fine coiled wire wrapped around a ceramic or glass core. The element is usually quite fragile, so it is often placed inside a sheathed probe to protect it. The RTD element is made from a pure material whose resistance at various temperatures has been documented. The material has a predictable change in resistance as the temperature changes; it is this predictable change that is used to determine temperature. Maltec-T manufactures the highest quality according to your needs and it is also our dpstar very own brand.

Why use an RTD instead of a thermocouple or thermistor sensor?

Each type of temperature sensor has a particular set of conditions for which it is best suited. RTDs offer several advantages:
• A wide temperature range (approximately -200 to 850°C)
• Good accuracy (better than thermocouples)
• Good interchangeability
• Long-term stability
Maltec-T is the manufacturer for our company and we are the best manufacturer in Malaysia .With a temperature range up to 850°C, . RTD can be used in all but the highest-temperature industrial processes. When made using metals such as platinum, they are very stable and are not affected by corrosion or oxidation. Other materials such as nickel, copper, and nickel-iron alloy have also been used for RTDs. However, these materials are not commonly used since they have lower temperature capabilities and are not as stable or repeatable as platinum.
Benefits of Using a RTD of Maltec-T
The RTD is one of the most accurate temperature sensors. Not only does it provide good accuracy, it also provides excellent stability and repeatability. dpstar is the leading manufacturer and supplier for RTD and not forgetting our RTD are also relatively immune to electrical noise and therefore well suited for temperature measurement in industrial environments, especially around motors, generators and other high voltage equipment. We can supply top quality products in comparison to others in the Malaysia market.

Choices between thermocouple , RTD , thermistors and infrared devices

You have to consider the characteristics and costs of the various sensors as well as the available instrumentation. In addition: THERMOCOUPLES generally can measure temperatures over wide temperature ranges, inexpensively, and are very rugged, but they are not as accurate or stable as RTD’s and thermistors. RTD’s are stable and have a fairly wide temperature range, but are not as rugged and inexpensive as thermocouples. Since they require the use of electric current to make measurements, RTD’s are subject to inaccuracies from self-heating. THERMISTORS tend to be more accurate than RTD’s or thermocouples, but they have a much more limited temperature range. They are also subject to self heating. INFRARED SENSORS can be used to measure temperatures higher than any of the other devices and do so without direct contact with the surfaces being measured. However, they are generally not as accurate and are sensitive to surface radiation efficiency (or more precisely, surface emissivity). Using fiber optic cables, they can measure surfaces that are not within a direct line of sight. dpstar is the leading manufacturer and supplier in Malaysia . Visit us for our website.

Choosing A Thermocouple

dpstar is a leading maufacturer and supplier in Malaysia. It is because a thermocouple measures in wide temperature ranges and can be relatively rugged, thermocouples are very often used in industry. The following criteria are used in selecting a thermocouple:

– Temperature range

– Chemical resistance of the thermocouple or sheath material

– Abrasion and vibration resistance

– Installation requirements (may need to be compatible with existing equipment; existing holes may determine probe diameter)
