HPB and HSPB load force sensors from Cooper Instruments & Systems, Warrenton, VA, are accurate, low-profile devices for use where a single load sensor is appropriate, regardless of platform size. The HPB sensors are available in 5, 10, 20, or 100 kg ranges and offer a 1.0 mV/V output ±0.01, combined nonlinearity and hysteresis of <±0.0200% F.S. and zero balance <±0.0600% F.S. HSPB sensors are offered in 50–100 kg or 200–500 kg force ranges and have a 1.0 mV/V output ±0.01, combined nonlinearity and hysteresis of <±0.0500% F.S. and zero balance <±2% F.S. Applications include medical office scales, baggage and retail scanner scales, and retail self-checkout systems.
