Tension and Compression Force Sensors

We also provide an extensive range of tension and compression force sensors. Three different types are available: load cells with internal or external threads, S-type force sensors and flat sized force transducers. For example, our universal precision force sensor, type K-11, high-precision, extremely compact, easy to install and with standardized nominal value, can be optimally integrated into ex­ist­ing systems. Or our low-cost, but yet highly accurate S beam load cell, type K-25, which is available in very small to medium measuring ranges and optionally (available up to 10 kN) provided with a mechanical stop as overload protection against damages, caused by impermissibly high tensile and compressive forces. These sensors provide standardized analog, unreinforced strain gauge bridge output signals in mV/V. As an option, many of our tension and compression force sensors can be supplied with an extended temperature range of -40°C up to 150°C. Typical applications for these sensor types are for example, material testing machines, rope or elastic force measurement, ex­am­ination of operating forces, determination of force in belt tensioners or bowden controls, industrial process monitoring at press-in, riveting, stamping, drawing operations, … .
