New Products: Force Sensor Bracket and Mini Amplifier
Apr 28, 2023
Senstech AG is launching two new products at this year's SENSOR+TEST in Nuremberg: the compact KB-011-1600 Force Sensor Bracket and the SA-011-1500 Mini Signal Amplifier.
The force sensor bracket is rectangular in shape and has a size of 9×14 mm. It can be mounted with an M2 screw and a dowel pin to prevent rotation. The sensing element is based on thin-film strain gauges and is suitable for measuring or monitoring forces in medical devices, measuring and testing equipment or industrial machines. Its force range is 20 N; further measuring ranges from approx. 3 to 100 N can be realized by adapting the sheet thickness (on request). The force is applied to the bracket via a round-head rivet; alternatively, two screw holes are available for usage-specific force application.
The SA-011-1500 mini signal amplifier is suitable for amplifying the output signal of a force sensor directly in the supply line. In this way, it can be transmitted without interference and digitized with simple means. The module is based on the AD627 instrumentation amplifier and is available in four variants covering operating voltages from 2.2 to 25 V and different input signal ranges. It is compatible with development platforms such as Arduino as well as with 0-10 V analog inputs.
