This piezoelectric load cell, also known as piezoelectric force transducer, is a preloaded and calibrated force sensor which is delivered ready for mounting and measurement of both tensile and compression forces. The integrated cable is protected by a fluoroelastomer sheath. SlimLine load cells are easy to install and are immediately ready for measurements. The preloaded piezoelectric load cell can measure both tensile and compression forces and produces an electric charge that is directly proportional to the applied force. It is converted to a proportional voltage by the charge amplifier, to be connected downstream (e.g., Kistler Type 5074A), and can be processed further as desired. The SlimLine force transducers are ground-isolated, thereby largely avoiding problems with ground loops.
