Large FORT Force Transducer
- Transform applied force into proportional voltage
This rigid-lever force transducer transforms applied force into proportional voltage. Using balanced strain gauges, FORT transducers produce linear output voltage vs. applied force input with very little deflection. To use, clamp the handle of the FORT transducer in a horizontal position and apply the forces to be measured to a rivet or hook mounted in the hole at the end of the flat sensing leaf.
The transducer is highly resistant to mechanical damage. Its body is machined from aluminum and mounts to a standard ring stand or, with the handle removed, clamp mounts.
How to use
Clamp the handle of the FORT transducer in a horizontal position and apply the forces to be measured to a rivet or hook mounted in the hole at the end of the flat sensing leaf.
