Clamping force and thread torque sensors for coefficient of friction testing of bolts and nuts / 5413-196xA
The clamping force and thread torque sensors operate according to the strain gauge principle and supply an analog output signal in mV/V.
- Measurement of clamping force and thread torque on separate measuring channels
- Measuring ranges of 5 kN to 500 kN (clamping force)
- Measuring ranges of 10 Nm to 1 kNm (thread torque)
- Automatic sensor identification Autocode
- Mechanical adaptations for different thread dimensions
The measuring bodies of the clamping force and thread torque sensors of family Type 5413-196xA are equipped with strain gauges and protected by a stainless steel housing. The test items are adapted by means of mechanical adaptations in the corresponding thread sizes (optional) on the clamping force and thread torque sensor, whereby mechanical adaptations via integrated centering aids ensure a centric force and torque application of the test items in the measuring body. The contact surfaces required for testing can be realized via optional washer sledges as specified by standards, which are captively secured to the retaining plate by an optional holder to prevent rotation. The integrated AUTOCODE system enables the sensor to be automatically detected and calibrated when it is connected to appropriately equipped measuring systems. The clamping force and thread torque sensors are delivered with a quality certificate. Upon request, they can be calibrated in our calibration lab.
