Introducing vLite™ Technology -- the Industry’s Lightest, Highest Performing Load Cell for Portable Applications

MALVERN, Pa., June 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VPG Force Sensors, a Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (NYSE: VPG) company, announced the launch of vLite™ technology, a groundbreaking innovation that reimagines load cell construction. Designed to meet a need for a lighter-weight alternative to standard load cells in the indoor legal-for-trade (LFT) market, this breakthrough design reduces load cell weight by approximately 50%, while maintaining the same best-in-class quality, accuracy and reliability of VPG Force Sensors' family of load cells. The combination of reduced weight and high performance of vLite enables machine manufacturers to better address the specifications of portable applications.

There are several vLite off-the-shelf load cell models currently available, which are exchangeable with equivalent load cells. Additionally, vLite technology can be implemented in customized designs.

vLite models are ideal for legal-for-trade retail applications like supermarket checkout scales, back-office scales, and postal scales; medical applications such as fluid weighing and monitoring, hospital beds, incubators for premature babies, and infant scales; and packaging, bottling, and filling machines. They offer renowned VPG quality and a 2-year warranty, minimizing production risks.
