HBM miniature force transducer controls assembly processes.

HBM’s new PACEline force transducer family provides measurement ranges from 5-120kN for reliable integrated force measurement especially where space is a constraint.

Where using uncalibrated force washers has only been possible so far, transducers of the PACEline family can now be used. The flange mounted transducers eliminate the need for preloading and thus for additional calibration of the system as a whole.

Every transducer is available with two calibrated measurement ranges - 20% and 100% of nominal force. This eliminates the need to use many different transducer types, because multiple measurement tasks can be implemented using a single type of transducer.

The size of piezo sensors from the PACEline series is 3% of that of other sensor technologies. The sensors measure at consistent accuracy over many decades. A balanced, industrial charge amplifier is used for signal conditioning to +/-10V analog standard signals. For industrial applications, the charge amplifier provides TEDS, electrically isolated inputs, and electrical isolation of measurement signal and supply voltage.

The sensor is supplied in a set complete with cable and charge amplifier and provides a robust, calibrated solution for force measurement in manufacturing and assembly automation.
