Summing box reduces installation costs for piezoelectric force transducers

HBM has launched the CSB summing box to conveniently combine measurements from up to four piezoelectric force sensors in parallel and connect them to a charge amplifier input.

The CSB summing box simplifies the use of piezoelectric force sensors in parallel while providing additional benefits. The CSB's connection shielding is electrically isolated from the enclosure simplifying installation since additional insulation for the enclosure is not needed; HBM introduced this approach on its range of PACEline charge amplifiers. Possible signal interference from ground loops is effectively prevented.

Typical applications for piezoelectric force transducers connected in parallel are found throughout mechanical engineering as well as in packaging and sealing machines. Other applications include drop testing for devices along with similar testing requirements.

The launch of the CSB summing box continues HBM's commitment to continually expand its product portfolio for piezoelectric force measurement technology. Together with other components such as measuring leads, charge amplifiers and software, HBM offers a complete range of instrumentation for piezoelectric force measurement.
