Piezoelectric force sensors, ring force transducers (Fz max up to 400 kN / 90 klbf) / 90x1C
Piezoelectric force sensors, also known as piezoelectric ring force transducers, for precise measurement of tensile and compressive forces in highest resolution.
- Piezoelectric force sensor with two calibrated measuring ranges
- Very compact ring force transducer
- Very high stiffness and very low treshold
- Linearity including hysteresis ≤±0.5%
- Different degrees of protection available (e.g. IP68)
- No aging, unlimited service life
The 90x1 family is a piezoelectric (PE) sensor series for force measurement in the z-direction. These ring force transducers contain a quartz sensor element which measures the force directly transferred through the cover and base of the tightly welded steel case. When subjected to a mechanical load, quartz produces an electric charge that is proportional to that load. An outstanding property of quartz is the very low threshold and, thus, a high sensor sensitivity that remains extremely linear over the entire measuring range. Thus the behaviour in a certain measuring range is practically identical for all PE sensors, independent of their size.
