Quartz Transverse Measuring Pin Kistler Model 9241CA3
Quartz transverse measuring pin is a piezoelectric sensor for indirect force measurement in machine structures, tools, etc. in industrial monitoring tasks. The front part of the sensor is sensitive to transversal forces. Shaped as a cylindrical pin, all it needs for its installation is a 10 mm borehole.
An integrated clamping system is used to preload the sensor in the borehole enabling it to detect tensile and compressive forces in the machine structure. The ceramic-coated body sleeve allows to mount the sensor ground insulated.
Once installed, the sensor can be calibrated by comparative measurement, e.g. with a calibrating force sensor. The main application field is the industrial monitoring of machine forces (machine monitoring, tool monitoring, etc.). In combination with a Control Monitor, it can be used to monitor limit values of forces that are decisive in the safety and reliability of machines and tools.
