SLB700 Strain Sensor: A Cost-Effective Sensor for Indefinitely High Forces
The screw-on SLB700 strain sensor is based on the principle that an applied force always results in strain on an object. This strain can be reliably measured. Since the strain is generally proportional to the force, the SLB700A sensor enables the applied force to be reliably determined. The sensor needs to be calibrated prior to its use to obtain quantitative results.
The advantage of this cost-effective sensor is that it enables even extremely large forces to be reliably measured. Additionally, the sensor does not affect the monitored machine’s dynamics.
The SLB700 is a strain transducer. This means that the output signal is higher by a factor of 2.3 when compared to a bonded strain gauge installation. This allows using the sensor with objects, like presses, which show only minimal deformation under load.
The sensor materials withstand most of the oils, which are used in applications involving presses, and are rustproof.
