Reaction Torque Transducer PrinciplesA reaction transducer has two mounting flanges. One face is fixed to ground or a rigid structural member and the other to the rotating or rotary element. Rotation generates shear forces between the flanges.
The most common torque sensor measurement principle uses bonded strain gauge technology, where the strain gauges are bonded to a suitably designed shaft.
How a Load Cell WorksThe conversion is achieved by the physical deformation of strain gauges, which are bonded onto the load cell structure. The strain gauges are connected into a Wheatstone Bridge circuit with four strain gauges (full bridge), two gauges (half bridge) or one gauge (quarter bridge).
Load Cell Operating PrincipleStrain gauge load cells convert the load acting on them into electrical signals. The gauges themselves are bonded onto a beam or structural member that deforms when force is applied. In most cases, four strain gauges are used to obtain maximum sensitivity and temperature
A position sensor is any device used for measuring the distance traveled by a body starting from its reference position. It measures linear or angular position in reference to a fixed point or arbitrary reference.
This section illustrates our range of gauge pressure sensors that can be used to measure pressure referenced to ambient atmospheric pressure.
A Position sensor is any type of device which detects the movement of a chosen object in either a Linear or Rotary motion and converts the movement into output signals which are suitable for processing, transmission or control depending on the application.
Types of pressure measurements
DISPLACEMENT SENSOR APPLICATIONS Machine automation - these are extreme environments so the sensor must have the correct sealing to be suitable.
① Repeatability: The maximum difference between load cell output readings for repeated loadings under identical loading and environmental conditions.
② Resolution: The smallest change in mechanical input which produces a change in the output signal.
③ Sensitivity : The ratio of the change in output to the mechanical input.
