3-Component Force Sensors Kistler Models 9167A, 9168A, 9167AB, 9168AB

3-Component Force Sensors, Kistler, Models, 9167A, 9168A, 9167AB, 9168AB The 3-Component Force Sensors contain quartz rings which are mounted between two steel plates in the transducer class in Kistler Models 9167A, 9168A, 9167AB, 9168AB.

Two quartz rings are sensitive to shear and measure the force components Fx and Fy, while a pair of quartz rings sensitive to pressure measures the component Fz of a force acting in any direction on the sensor. The electrical charges yielded proportionally to the different components are led via electrodes to the corresponding connector contacts.

The quartz stack is protected by the rustproof, tightly welded sensor case. The cable outlet serves to orient the sensor.
