Piezoelectric shear force sensor sets Slimline, sets of 2, 3 or 4 ring force transducers (Fy max up to ±8 kN / ±1.8 klbf per sensor) / 914XBA-Set
- Measurement of summed or individual shear forces of up to 4 sensors
- Sensors ground on same height
- Cable length can be chosen individually for each load cell
- Flexible, compact installation in structures
The SlimLine sets consist of 2, 3 or 4 shear force sensors permanently attached to a connector. The cable length of each ring force transducer can be selected individually between 0.1 m and 2 m. The total force Fy to be measured is applied to the force sensors through special pretensioned or fitted elements. Each load cell produces an electric charge proportional to its force component. The charge signals are fed out through electrodes and integrated cables. The individual sensor cables in the SlimLine set are connected inseparable to a special 7-pole connector. Sensors and connector are firmly connected and cannot be separated. The force sensor signals are individually fed to the corresponding pin positions. The further signal processing can be determined by an appropriate connecting cable: either to mesure a total signal of the summed shear force (use cable Type 1971A) or to measure individual signals of the specific forces (force components) acting on the individual sensors (use cable Type 1973A).
Measurements of the total force (total signal) or partial force (individual signal) per sensor can be made with an appropriate connecting cable. The SlimLine sets are supplied tested but uncalibrated. The piezoelectric force sensors must be calibrated in situ after mounting.
