Less is more

The new S-Type force transducer from tecsis GmbH, in Germany, can replace up to three conventional versions thanks to its easily adjustable measurement range, according to the manufacturer.

With the PE01 programming unit the user can reduce the measurement range from 100% to 30%. Accuracy, which always amounts to 0.2% of the total measurement range, is increased significantly at the same time, according to the company, while the integrated overload protection allows for a load of up to 400% of the normal force in both directions.

“The sensing element, which is sealed with a laser, gives all the advantages of a strain gauge, but doesn't have the disadvantages, like temperature drift,” said a company spokesman.
