Strain gauge load cells for crash test dummies, femur, HIII-6-year-old child / M501A1
The strain gauge dummy load cells of family Type M501A1A are designed to measure the force in the area of femur of the crash test dummy HIII-6 (Y7).
Main features / advantages
- Uniaxial (Fz)
- DTI or analog version
- Low linearity and hysteresis
- Compatible with structural replacement
- Polarities according to SAE J211/1
The family Type M501A1 dummy load cells are based on strain gauges using deformation bodies in which the forces and moments to be measured are introduced. To avoid linearity errors, the deformation paths are structurally designed for measuring purposes so that a very proportional behavior can be realized. The strain gauges applied to these bodies allow for the transformation of mechanical loads to proportional changes in resistance measured by a Wheatstone bridge.
