Nominal (rated) force
The nominal (rated) force is the force at which the transducer is 100 percent loaded. All transducer specifications are met in this force range. Please keep in mind that tare loads resulting, e.g., from the tare weight of mounting parts also need to be taken into account and that they use up part of the nominal (rated) force. With dynamic loading, it is essential to take into consideration the transducers' oscillation width.
