Industrial Force/Process Monitoring Sensors

January 23, 2006, Depew, NY, USA - Piezoelectric sensors from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc. (PCB®) utilize piezoelectric quartz sensing elements to measure dynamic and quasi-static forces on machinery structures. Piezoelectric sensors feature high rigidity and have no internal moving parts and thus are not susceptible to fatigue or sensitivity over millions of cycles....
