Dynamic Force Sensors measure short-duration events.

Press Release Summary:




Piezoelectric force sensors measure dynamic force in compression, tension, and impact modes. They possess necessary response and endurance to follow fast-rising, short-duration force events such as crimping, stamping, punching, forming, and drop and impact testing. Force sensor types include ring, 3-component ring, link, impact, penetration, and strain styles. ICP® and charge output versions are available; signal conditioning is also offered.



Original Press Release:



Dynamic Force Sensors Measure Fast-Rising, Short-Duration Events



April 12, 2004, Depew, New York - Piezoelectric force sensors from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. accurately measure dynamic force in compression, tension, and impact modes. Unlike strain gage sensors that are suitable for measuring slowly changing or static loads, dynamic force sensors possess the necessary response and endurance to accurately follow fast-rising, short-duration force events such as crimping, stamping, punching, forming, and drop and impact testing.

A variety of dynamic force sensor types are offered, including ring, three-component ring, link, impact, penetration, and strain styles. ICP® and charge output versions are available; signal conditioning is also offered.

Applications include tensile and fatigue testing, press force and machine process monitoring, package drop testing, force limited vibration testing, penetration testing, biomechanics research, and modal analysis.
