HBM paces ahead with its new compact force transducer

HBM paces ahead with its new compact force transducer

As precise measurements of especially small forces in a given measuring environment often place high requirements on force transducers, HBM - a market leader in the field of test and measurement - has responded to these demands by developing the new CFT-25kN force transducer with a nominal force of 25kN.

Featuring a compact design, without compromising on accuracy, the new CFT-25kN is only 3% the size of other transducers on the market using similar sensors, which is particularly suitable for use when space is constrained.

Manufactured to the highest quality using Gallium Phosphate, 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.  

Featuring a high degree of rigidity and a rugged design, the CFT-25kN is particularly useful for use in adverse industry 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 dramatically reduced, providing the user with more accurate results.  

Designed with the user in mind, the mechanical connection has a flange screw on both sides and a central bore, meaning that the new CFT-25kN force transducer can be easily and quickly integrated into existing systems, offering substantial time savings.

The CFT-25kN is the latest offering from the PACEline range of products now available from HBM.  The PACEline range is suitable for use in force and strain measurement technology and is based on the piezoelectric effect.
