HBM has extended the flexibility of its U10 force transducers with the U10S version which has UNF standard threads for mechanical connection.
UNF thread diameters and pitches – which are specified in inches – are standard throughout industry in Great Britain and the USA and are widely used in other areas. They are used in numerous applications such as in aircraft construction.
Tensile and compressive forces – whether static or dynamic – can be safely and precisely measured, even on applications where there are high lateral forces and bending moments acting on the transducer.
The force transducers are made of non-rusting materials and come with electrical bending moment alignment. They are available in a wide range of different configurations and are ideally suited to the needs of any application.
The force transducers, which work with SG technology, are available with nominal (rated) measuring ranges of 1.25 kN to 500 kN.
The transducers are fitted with a variety of electrical connections and come in different mechanical designs and are fitted with TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet). This enables automatic parameterization of the amplifier system.
The transducers can optionally be calibrated with 200% of the nominal (rated) force. HBM has been supplying its U10 force transducers for many years and they are now commonly found in test benches, industrial applications and test machines.
