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.
Process optimization, quality assurance, and the prevention of downtimes are key issues associated with any technical plant or machinery. The measurement of force and strain supports the process and detects wear or excessive loads on bearings, suspensions, or supports at an early stage.
The measurement of forces in fusion processes or monitoring of mounting forces are key indicators that verify the quality of a process and detect potential sources of errors at an early stage.
Whether you need to detect a limit force faster, speed up the process or increase reproducibility, all of these parameters are controlled and optimized by the use of force measurement. This in turn can contribute greatly to increased process output.
Prevention of Maintenance
Data acquired from force measurement helps prevent downtime, serves the optimization of maintenance cycles and prevents the overloading of components. Forces are displayed directly and can be optimized. As a consequence, maintenance and processing costs fall.
Force sensor or strain sensor – which sensor is the right one for your application?
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?
