The compact hydraulic compression force transducer is available from a rated load of 160 N up to 60 kN. Hydraulic force measurement is a simple way to capture and display the forces occurring in various applications. Applications for hydraulic force measurement can be found in equipment manufacturing, in device and special machine building and also with measuring and control systems.
The force is measured using the principle of hydraulics: The force acting on a piston leads to a pressure increase that can be visualised on a connected display instrument. The scale of the display instrument can be defined in various units (e.g. 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 loads below 500 N, the accuracy 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.
