Force Sensors are suited for material and impact testing.

Press Release Summary:




General Purpose Piezoelectric Force Sensors measure dynamic compression, tensile, and impact forces in various applications. Offered in ICP® and charge output types, sensors measure full-scale compression forces from 10-5,000 lb and full-scale tensile forces from 10-500 lb. ICP force sensors contain built-in microelectronics to convert high-impedance charge to low-impedance voltage. Charge output versions are available for higher temperature applications.

General Purpose Force Sensors



August 13, 2004, Depew, NY -- General Purpose Piezoelectric Force Sensors from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. measure dynamic compression, tensile, and impact forces in a wide variety of applications. Sensors are offered in both ICP® and charge output types, and measure full-scale compression forces from 10 to 5000 lb (45 N to 22k N) and full-scale tensile forces from 10 to 500 lb (45 to 2200 N). Applications include drop and impact testing, material testing, fatigue testing, biomechanics, and modal analysis force input.

ICP® force sensors contain built-in microelectronics to convert the high impedance charge to a low impedance voltage, which eliminates the need for expensive charge amplifiers and low noise cables. Charge output versions are also available for higher temperature applications.
