Force Sensor Bracket and Mini Amplifier

Senstech AG introduces two new products: The compact Force Sensor Bracket KB-011-1600, which is compact and easy to integrate, and the Mini Signal Amplifier SA-011-1500, which can be integrated into the supply lines of any sensor.

The force sensor bracket is rectangular and has a size of 9×14 mm. It can be mounted twist-proof with an M2 screw and a dowel pin. It is based on thin film strain gauge technology and is suitable for measuring or monitoring forces in medical devices, test equipment or industrial machines. Its force range is 20 N. Further measuring ranges from approx. 3 to 100 N can be realized by adapting the sheet thickness (on request). The force is transmitted to the bracket via a round-head rivet; alternatively, two screw holes are available for usage-specific force application.

The SA-011-1500 mini signal amplifier is suitable for amplifying the output signal of a force sensor directly in the supply line. This allows it to be transmitted without interference and digitized with simple means. The module is based on the AD627 instrumentation amplifier and is available in four variants covering operating voltages from 2.2 to 25 V and different input signal ranges. It is compatible with development platforms such as Arduino as well as with 0-10 V analog inputs.
