Linear actuators now have inbuilt force measuring option

An integrated load cell option available on Exlar's linear actuators provides a direct method for obtaining electronic data relating to the force being applied by the actuator. Moreover, the packaging the of the load cell delivers a compact, protected robust design, with the strain gauge load sensors embedded within the actuator housing.

The load cell is a strain gauge type, offering stable and accurate load sensing (+/-1 percent linearity, +/-0.5 percent repeatability and hysteresis, 1 percent nominal) in both tension and compression directions, and for static or dynamic loads. The force measuring option is provided as a package, which includes a separate fitting for connecting the internal load sensor to an external strain conditioner/amplifier required to excite the strain gauge sensor. 

In addition, Exlar offers a rugged strain gauge conditioner to provide a high level signal, either 0-10V or 4-20mA output, for monitoring of the output signal - which is compatible with standard gauge monitors and PLC strain gauge input cards. Alternatively, any one of numerous conditioners/amplifiers on the market can be used.
