Dynamic Impact Force Sensors Measure Millions of Cycles for Automotive Durability Testing



June 2, 2005, Depew, NY - Piezoelectric dynamic impact force sensors from the Force/Torque Division of PCB Piezotronics, Inc., accurately measure dynamic impact force. Unlike strain gage sensors that are suitable for measuring static loads, dynamic impact force sensors possess the necessary response and endurance to accurately follow fast-rising, repetitive and short-duration force events such as actuation or operation of various automotive accessories and components. The sensitivity of piezoelectric force sensors does not change with time, thus they are suitable for continuous automotive durability testing.


Series 200B, 200C and 210B offer a variety of sizes and ranges and all feature a durable impact surface to evenly distribute impacts into the force sensor. ICP® and charge output versions are available; signal conditioning is also offered. Durability applications include compression, impact and fatigue testing of latches, doors, hoods, trunks, seats, springs, actuators, suspensions, chassis, brackets and other automotive accessories and components.
