Quartz modal force sensors with IEPE output, 22 … 22000 N / 9712B

Quartz force sensors for structural vibration and modal analyses complement the Kistler product portfolio for NVH testing.


The Type 9712B force sensor family measures dynamic events in a wide variety of applications.
  • Low-impedance, voltage mode
  • Rugged quartz sensor, stainless steel case
  • Wide measuring ranges for compression and tension
  • Hermetically sealed
  • Conforming to CE
The 9712B family of quartz, piezoelectric load cells offers a wide selection of force measurement ranges for compression and tension. Minute incremental forces may be measured at any level in these ranges. These force sensors offer a high sensitivity as well as high rigidity and are capable of withstanding compression overloads from 20% to 400%. High force range units allow static calibration and short-term static response when used in constant ambient temperature. The low profile load cell incorporates a built-in impedance converter, allowing use in contaminated environments such as dust, dirt, or moisture without adverse effects on the signal transmission.
