- KWT1C25 supports measure tension force and compression force, and the force measured are extremely precise because the unique structural design.
- The nonlinearity of the sensor is less than 0.1%, the hysteresis is less than 0.1%, and the repeatability is less than 0.05%.
- The deflection of the sensor is less than 0.02 mm at full-scale load .
- The working temperature is -10 °C~80 °C.
- The design of the standard threaded holes facilitates the connection and adjustment of the sensor during use.
- It has excellent mechanical properties and can withstand external loads such as torque, bending moment and side load.
Force sensors that can measure both tension and compression are commonly known as universal force sensors. However, some applications only require the measurement of a specific type of force. In these cases,single axis force sensors offer several advantages.
Firstly, these sensors are designed to be highly sensitive to the type of force they are measuring. This means that they can provide extremely accurate readings, which is essential in applications such as material testing, where the force being applied needs to be recorded with extreme precision.
Secondly, single-axis force sensors are often more compact and easy to install compared to universal force sensors. This is because they only need to be designed to measure a specific type of force, and therefore tend to be simpler in their construction.
Thirdly, single-axis force sensors tend to be less expensive than universal force sensors. This is because they are designed for a specific application, and therefore do not need to include the additional features required to measure both tension and compression forces.
Finally, single-axis force sensors are ideal for applications where only one specific type of force needs to be measured. This means that they are often used in applications such as weighing scales, where only the force of an object pressing down needs to be measured.
In conclusion, while universal force sensors are ideal for applications where both tension and compression forces need to be measured, single-axis force sensors offer several advantages in applications where only one specific type of force needs to be measured. These sensors are highly accurate, easy to install, less expensive, and ideal for applications such as weighing scales.
Model of KWT1C25
Load cells are devices that are commonly used to measure the weight, force or torque of an object. A load cell measures the force or weight applied to it by converting the mechanical force into electrical signals that can then be read by a computer or other electronic device. A load cell is commonly used in industrial applications such as weighing scales, force testing machines, and material testing machines.
A load cell is typically made up of a metal body that contains a strain gauge. The strain gauge is a thin wire or filament that stretches and contracts as force or weight is applied to the load cell. The stretching and contracting of the strain gauge causes a change in electrical resistance, which is then measured by a computer or other electronic device.
Construction and civil engineering applications often involve the use of load cells to monitor the weight of materials being transported or lifted. Load cells can also be used to monitor the structural integrity of buildings and bridges.
In the medical field, load cells are used to measure the force and torque generated by muscles and tendons. This information is useful in understanding how the body moves and functions, and can be used to develop better prostheses and assistive devices.
Overall, load cells are an essential tool in a variety of industries and applications. They allow for accurate measurements of force and weight, which are crucial in ensuring the safety and efficiency of machinery, vehicles, and structures.
