Transducer class sensors serve high-precision strain measurements

Automation / Robotics Electronics strain sensors

VPG S5060 Series of transducer class multi-grid advanced strain sensors facilitate reliable, accurate, cost-effective multi-axis force, torque/axial and torsional load measurements within robotics, factory automation, machinery and tooling applications. When installed in pairs, the circuitry pattern of the devices may be used to construct both a full-torsion bridge and a full-Poisson bridge, via the installation of just two strain sensors. The number of required circuit refinements for initial zero balance, as well as temperature compensation for zero balance, are further reduced via improvements in resistance tolerance (±0.2%) and grid-to-grid thermal performance matching specifications. http://www.vpgsensors.com
