Kistler Model 9232A "HighSens" Strain Sensor
The strain of the basic material acts via the two contact surfaces on the sensor as a change in distance. The sensor enclosure serves as an elastic transmission element and converts the change in distance into a force. The piezoelectric elements subjected to shear strain produce an electric charge Q (pC) proportional to this force.
The sensor design allows it to be used in industrial environments. With its connected cable, the measuring chain satisfies the requirements of protective class IP65. The top part of the "HighSens" enclosure is made of stainless steel. A 10-32 UNF neg. is the integrated connector. This allows the use of a broad selection of connecting cables.
