Strain gauge load cells for crash test dummies, upper neck, THOR-50M / M55596
The strain gauge dummy load cells of the family Type M55596A are designed to measure forces and moments in the area of upper neck of the crash test dummy THOR-M (TH).
- Upper neck
- Six-axial (Fx, Fy, Fz, Mx, My, Mz)
- DTI or analog version
- Low linearity and hysteresis
- Compatible with structural replacement
- Polarities according to SAE J211/1
The family Type M55596 dummy load cells are based on strain gauges using deformation bodies in which the forces and moments to be measured are introduced. To avoid linearity errors, the deformation paths are structurally designed for measurement applications so that a very proportional behavior can be realized. The strain gauges applied to these bodies enable the transformation of mechanical loads to proportional changes in resistance measured by a Wheatstone bridge.
