All-round solution for force measurement of the future
Measuring amplifiers are required to convert an mV/V signal into the applicable output signal for the control system. Thanks to a large number of features such as input and output parameterization, the smart DAB measurement amplifiers additionally save valuable time when commissioning force measurement solutions. Various smart functions that make relevant data available in a pre-processed form also considerably contribute to relieving the load on the control system.
Looking for force measurement solutions usually force sensors are taken into consideration. Especially when it comes to large forces, strain sensors are a cost efficient and clever alternative. When are strain sensors suitable solutions and when is it better to use force sensors? What are the differences between the two sensor types and what are the optimal scenarios for using each?
