The miniature model F1818 compression force transducer is suitable for measuring static and dynamic compression forces up to 20 kN. The low overall height and small external diameter enable simple installation in machinery or test instruments and they can therefore be used in the widest variety of industrial areas.
With this, it is also ideally suited for the measurement of compression forces in areas where installation space is critical. Fields of application include test rigs for a variety of purposes, monitoring and control of manufacturing processes, in test facilities and laboratories.
To avoid overloading, it is advantageous to connect the force transducer electrically during assembly and to monitor the measured value. The measuring force must be introduced through the centre and free of transverse force. When assembling the force transducer, care should be taken that the support surface is flat.
