Measuring of Connector Forces

Industrial Test Systems – Constant Control of Force Measurement on Connectors and Contacts

It is important for the two elements of plug-and-socket connectors (both detachable and non-detachable) to enable good electrical contact. This means that the clamping force of connector contacts has to be verified accurately. Kistler offers reliable high-precision sensor technology for indirect measurements of the clamping force based on the insertion and removal forces. State-of-the-art monitoring systems are used to visualize and evaluate these two forces, yielding qualitative statements that are integrated into the process.

Advantages of connector force measurement with Kistler:

  • Wide measuring range and high sensitivity, especially for small forces
  • Sensors with overload protection
  • Evaluation based on window technology
  • Retrofitting is straightforward
  • Integrated process monitoring
  • 100% verification
