The model F6116 compact hydraulic ring force transducer enables the simple and economical measurement and display of forces. Its measuring ranges from 320 N to 120 kN. Since it is independent of any power source, this type of measuring system offers ideal operating conditions for different fields of application.
Hydraulic force measurement makes use of a piston-case combination with different seals as a sensor unit. The force acting is the product of the area and the pressure.
For the display of the pressure, either pressure gauges, pressure sensors or pressure measuring instruments with contact devices can be used. The scale of the display instrument can be defined in various units, e.g., in N, kN, kg, t.
The warranty on leak tightness of the hydraulic force measuring unit was extended to 5 years2). A force transducer that starts to leak within this period will be repaired free of charge.
1) For rated forces below 500 N, the relative linearity error is ±1.6 % Fnom for all connected measuring instruments.
2) Use of the force measuring unit as intended is a prerequisite for the extended 5-year warranty.
