Our compression force sensors, with only few exceptions, are designed low profile with a small diameter, so they are well suited for applications in confined spaces. We manufacture compression force transducers with a spherical load application button, or ring force sensors which have a through-hole and are therefore particularly suited for the measurement of tension forces, or the implementation of mounting parts. The sensors provide standardized analog, unreinforced strain gauge bridge output signals in mV/V. As an option, many of our compression force sensors can be supplied with an extended temperature range of -40°C up to 150°C. For the protection against damages, caused by impermissibly high compression stress, our compression force sensor type K-13B, for example, is supplied with an integrated mechanical stop for overload protection by default. Typical applications for these sensor types are for example shear force and press-in force measurement, measurement of preload forces in screws, industrial process monitoring during force fitting, joining, riveting, stamping, … .
