Lower installation costs for piezoelectric force transducers
HBM continues to expand its product portfolio for piezoelectric force measurement technology and now offers a convenient option for connecting up to four sensors in parallel.
To make this parallel connection as easy as possible for users, HBM now offers the CSB summing box. Users can then combine up to four piezoelectric force sensors and connect them to a charge amplifier input.
The connection shieldings are electrically isolated from the enclosure, as is also the case for PACEline charge amplifiers. This makes it very easy for users to install the summing box since they do not need to be concerned with an additional insulation for the enclosure. At the same time ground loops which could cause signal interference are effectively prevented.
Piezoelectric force transducers connected in parallel are typically used in mechanical engineering in general as well as packaging and sealing machines. Further applications include testing, for example drop tests for devices. Together with other components such as measuring leads, charge amplifiers and software, HBM offers a complete range for piezoelectric force measurement from a single source.
