Kistler Models 9247A, 9247A0,8 Quartz M5 Longitudinal Measuring Pin
Extremely small quartz strain sensor for indirect measurement of forces in machinery, tools and assembly processes.
The sensor is installed with an accurately defined preload. The strain in the material is transferred to the quartz measuring element through the fastening thread M5 and the front of the sensor.
This yields an electrical charge proportional to the mechanical change in strain, which is converted by a charge amplifier into a voltage. This value can then be further processed as necessary.
Applications include monitoring of forces and strains in machinery and tools. The compact quartz longiudinal measuring pin M5 measures dynamic and quasistatic forces indirectly and is also suitable for measuring very large forces, even when mounting space is very limited.
