Piezoelectric force sensors, ring force transducers, maximum forces Fz 7.5 kN to 400 kN

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.
