Compact force transducer
Precise measurements of especially small forces in a given measuring environment can place high requirements on force transducers. HBM has responded to these demands with the CFT-25kN force transducer which has a nominal force of 25kN.
Featuring a compact design, without compromising on accuracy, the new CFT-25kN, a member of the PACEline range, is only 3% the size of competitive transducers that use similar sensors, which is a particular benefit when space is an issue.
The CFT-25kN produces twice as high an output signal for the same measurement load in comparison to Quartz, which is the standard material on the market. This makes it possible to measure extremely small forces reliably. It is suited to use in harsh environments.
Customers who expose their products to extreme climatic conditions, such as sealing and reshaping processes and component tests, can benefit from the wide temperature range of -40°C to +120°C. Elimination of drift, which is often seen as a frustrating effect, is also reduced, providing the more accurate results.>
