As more and more applications in harsh environments require powerful force transducers, which feature a high resistance to external influences, HBM - a market leader in the field of test and measurement - is pleased to announce it has expanded its range of IP68 rated products to meet this need.

The new Stainless Steel C10 Force Sensor provides maximum precision in compressive force measurement, for even the most demanding of environments.

The new sensor offers 75 ppm and presents excellent linearity and hysteresis values. The sensors accuracy classes, which are between 0.03 and 0.06, depending on the nominal force which ranges from 2.5 kN to 1 MN, can be freely configured according to the application with a variety of options.

The sensor's core is optimally protected from external influences such as dirt and moisture in a Stainless Steel measuring body which comes complete with an optional integrated cable to achieve IP68 rating.

The U10M range of transducers from HBM also features the option of an integrated cable to achieve this high level of protection. Providing excellent accuracy, the U10M is currently the only flat shaped force sensor on the market to achieve IP68 protection. Suitable for use in ambient conditions, the U10M range from HBM can measure nominal (rated) forces from 1.25 kN to 500 kN.

Also achieving the equivalent level of protection under the same conditions is the S9M Force Transducer from HBM. Featuring an accuracy class of up to 0.02 for nominal (rated) forces between 500 N and 50 kN, the S9M provides clear and precise measurement results.

Suitable for use in multiple applications in experimental stress analysis, OEM applications or test equipment, the S9M complements the wide range of force transducers now available from HBM.

In addition to IP68 rated products, HBM also provide a full range of force sensors and transducers to measure static and dynamic tensile and compressive loads - with virtually no displacement.

Founded in Germany in 1950, HBM is today the technology and market leader in the field of test and measurement. HBM's product range comprises solutions for the entire measurement chain, from virtual to physical testing. The company has production facilities in Germany, USA and China and is represented in over 80 countries worldwide.
