Force Sensors

Force Sensors from Kistler

This Component Finder will make it easier for you to search for generic force sensors that can be used for general measurements in research and development or in test laboratories. As well as generic force sensors, Kistler offers a vast range of customized force measurement solutions in specific applications (see the information box on the right).

In universities and industry, for basic research or quality assurance: exact data is always essential in order to measure forces and make processes more cost-effective. Thanks to their rugged design, piezoelectric quartz sensors from Kistler keep precise track of quasi-static and highly dynamic force processes, even when conditions are difficult. Our force sensors can also handle simultaneous measurements of multiple orthogonal force components.
