Applications & Information
The force transducer works according to the strength measuring principle on a transverse basis to the longitudinal axis.
The SKA-40 is designed for application at conveyor scales, bin-type weighing devices, platform scales and overhead conveyor scales, but can also be used for measuring the forces applied on machine parts, levers, axles etc.
The device has been designed as a beam with a measuring cell. Due to the beam shape and two 17,5 mm size boreholes, all machine building requirements will be met when mounting this component. The force transfer is carried through by use of a M16 x 1,5 screw thread.
The measuring cell for the strain gauge has been cast with a high-elastic compound and is thus protected against mechanical or chemical damages.
The strain gauge bridges measure the caused deformation in the measuring cell due to the shear forces at the beam. An integrated amplifier gives a measuring signal between 1 and 9 mA or between 4 and 20 mA. The calibration is carried out by use of a resistor, parallel connected with a strain gauge bridge (software calibration).
The SKA-40 is assigned for the direct coupling to an automatic control or a controlling switch.
