Piezoelectric force sensors SlimLine, ring force transducers, maximum forces Fz 3 kN to 80 kN / 913xC
- Extremely small size with large measuring range
- Sealed housing (IP65)
- Integrated, non-detachable cable with fluoroelastomer sheath
- Also suitable for tensile forces when preloaded
- Measures practically free of displacement, wear and fatigue
- Measures even small forces with high resolution
The force Fz to be measured acts on the piezoelectric force sensor via the preloaded or mounting structure and produces a charge that is directly proportional to the force. This is measured by an electrode integrated in the ring force transducer and fed to the charge amplifier via the integrated cable. Because of their exceptional stiffness, SlimLine sensors are especially well suited for measuring dynamic forces. Cyclic measurements or measurements over several minutes are also possible, however. The sensor is especially well suited for measuring forces in shunt mode. This means that the sensor is embedded and preloaded in a structure. As a result, it is loaded with only part of the process force. Its especially small size is ideally suited for installation in structures such as force plates, fitting strips and tools. The sensor is used in industrial production processes in which forces are monitored or measured. Used in combination with a ControlMonitor, the sensor is ideal for quality control and monitoring.
Maximum resolution capacity, high stiffness and extremely compact dimensions enable ideal installation in mechanical structures. The case is hermetically sealed and has an integrated, splash-proof connecting cable with connector. The piezoelectric force sensors SlimLine are supplied uncalibrated and must be calibrated in situ after mounting for absolute measurements.
