Strain transducers

Strain transducers

Strain transducers are ideal for the measurement of extremely high loads and deformations. In contrast to force transducers which measure in the power flow, strain transducers work in the force shunt. They are fitted parallel to the power flow and measure even immense forces through the finest strains recorded on the transducer. Our strain transducers operate in the measuring range up to 750με. They are available with analog or digital output levels.


Strain transducers

Our strain transducers are especially popular in machine and plant engineering. The transducer is simply screwed to the machine component to be measured to record strain. Strain transducers have a 4 – 20mA analog current output or a CANopen digital output.
