Small FORT Force Transducers
- Broad dynamic measurement range
|Part #||Transducer size||Notes|
|FORT25||25g||Transform applied force into proportional voltage
Very high sensitivity
FORT10g is a reliable tool for high precision force measurement. Using balanced semiconductor strain gauges, this 10-gram force transducer produces linear output voltage versus applied force input with very little deflection. It is a temperature-compensated, full-bridge configuration with four high sensitivity semiconductor strain gauges. FORT10g has a broad dynamic measuring range and a very high sensitivity. The arms around the sensing leaf are designed to protect the leaf from an accidental touch which will disturb the force calibration and may damage the transducer.
This 25-gram force transducer is a reliable tool for high precision force measurement. Using balanced semiconductor strain gauges, FORT25 produces linear output voltage vs. applied force input with very little deflection. The rigid lever force transducer transforms the applied force into a proportional voltage. It is a temperature-compensated full-bridge configuration with four high sensitivity semiconductor strain gauges. FORT25 has a broad dynamic measuring range and a very high sensitivity.
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. The cable that connects the FORT10-100 to the recording amplifier is detachable, allowing for multiple cables to be configured for the user’s choice of amplifiers. FORT10-100 requires a transducer conditioning amplifier such as the Bridge8 or TBM4M
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.
