For General Use or Made-to-Measure Strain Sensors
August 2021, MARIETTA, GA ~ Kistler Instruments offers sensors to measure general applications for research and development or for use in test laboratories. All Kistler’s generic products measuring pressure, force, torque, acceleration and signal amplification are listed in the Component Finder – this tool also offers you a fast and reliable way to find customized solutions.
This Component Finder will make it easier for you to search for generic strain sensors that can be used for general measurements in research and development and for monitoring systems and machines in industrial applications.
Piezoelelectric sensors from Kistler can be used for high-resolution measurements of the strains occurring on a structure. To achieve this, the sensor is mounted in a suitable position. If an indirect force measurement is required, the sensor is calibrated. The relevant factors here are the geometry of the structure, the material's modulus of elasticity and the mechanical stress.
Surface strain sensors are attached to the structure with the mounting screw. The structure's strain is transmitted to the measuring element through static friction. Strain measuring pins need a cylindrical mounting bore in which the sensor is then inserted and preloaded. Kistler offers strain measurement sensors with axial and radial alignment to the axis of the bore hole.
