High Capacity Three-Component Force Sensors


Depew, NY - High Capacity ICP® and charge output Three-Component Force Sensors from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc., simultaneously measure dynamic or quasi-static forces in three orthogonal directions (X, Y, and Z). Sensors are structured with three quartz elements that provide long-term stability, repeatability, and linearity, with a wide dynamic range of 10,000 Ib in the z-axis and 4,000 Ib in the x, y axes. Hermetically-sealed stainless steel construction make these sensors ideal for applications such as force-limited vibration testing, modal analysis, engine mount analysis, cutting tool force monitoring, and impact testing.


Model 260A03 ICP® version utilizes built-in microelectronics to convert the high impedance charge to a low impedance voltage, and provides a voltage output of 0.25 mV/lb in the z-axis and 1.25 mV/lb in the x & y axes. Model 260A13 charge output version operates with in-line charge converters or laboratory style charge amplifiers, and provides a charge output of 15 pC/lb in the z-axis and 32 pC/lb in the x and y axes.
