Miniature indirect force sensor

Miniature indirect force sensor

The new measuring pin from Kistler, with its small diameter of 8mm and weight of only 34g, is ideal for protecting a wide range of structures from overload damage. Fitting into an 8mm hole in the structure, the new piezoelectric strain sensor can be easily installed in any position to monitor the forces in a structure to warn of impending failure due to overload conditions. The small size and weight allows retro-fitting to existing installations without introducing measurement error.

Sensitive to transverse forces, the new sensor is a cylindrical pin designed to be mounted in an 8 mm borehole of any depth and orientation to allow the measuring element to be placed precisely at the point where the greatest strain occurs. The integrated clamping system preloads the sensor in the borehole enabling the measurement of both tensile and compressive forces in the machine structure.
