May 18, 2006, Depew, NY, USA - The 261A Series Triaxial Force Link Sensors from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. simultaneously measure dynamic and quasi-static forces in three orthogonal directions (X, Y, and Z-axes). The sensors are used during vibration testing of aerospace structures to match the mechanical impedance of shaker inputs and may be used to force limit the shaker controller to prevent damage to expensive structures. Other applications include cutting tool monitoring, biomechanics feedback, and automobile chassis dynamics.
Series 261A comes preloaded between two plates, with a four-screw mounting pattern to allow easy installation and feature full-scale measuring ranges from 500 lb to 4,000 lb (2.2 kN to 18 kN) in the X and Y directions, and from 1,000 lb to 10,000 lb (4.5 kN to 45 kN) in the Z direction. Single axis models are also available.
