addition to our force transducer program with bonded foils, a new force
transducer with a welded thin film sensor was developed. The usage of
standardised sensors, which are welded into the measuring element, makes an
automated manufacturing possible. Combined with an accuracy of 0,5%, the new
shear beams are also of interest for OEM applications due to the attractive
price- performance ratio. Thin film sensors, produced by very modern
manufacturing technology, have all advantages of the conventional bonded foil strain
but without having their substantial disadvantages (temperature drifts of the
glue and creeping).
Shear beams are specially used as toque support of drives
or as standard component in weighing applications. Different output signals are
available: analogue standard-output signals (4...20 mA, 0...10V). Shear beams
fulfil the regulations of EMC according to directive EN 61326.
ATEX/IECEX (Option) Only
equipment and protective systems with the corresponding certification and
markings are to be put into operation in potentially explosive areas. Our force
transducers with a thin-film measuring cell and integrated amplifier now have
approval according to directive 94/9/EC in equipment group II (non-mining
products), category 2G for zones 1 and 2 (gases). Other zones on request.
SIL-3 (Option) In
cooperation with the TÜV Süddeutschland a special security electronics has been
developed for theatre and stage applications. It fulfils security standard SIL 3 with a 2-channel
PC control in connection.
