Mechatronics demand more and more precise motion in a compact volume. Actuators have been designed to answer to this problematic of compact integration and accuracy for several years.
However, positioning sensors available on the market can hardly keep pace with the accuracy requirements when scaling down the mechatronic system.
CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES has developed a Strain Gauge (SG) sensor for answering to this problematic of accuracy/resolution requirement in a compact size.
The SG Strain Gauge Sensor is a contact sensor which is bonded to the ceramics in order to measure their deformation.
Bridge impedance: 350 Ohms; Bridge sensitivity: 1,33 uV/ppm/V; Operating temperature range -75/+95°C; vacuum compatible
Other interfaces on request.
The SG75 Strain Gauges Conditioner uses the signal from the strain gauge probe. It is implemented on a 19' board and can include up to 3 independant channels.
Sensor type: strain gauge-based / 4 wires; Output Voltage (V): -10...+10; Max. number of channels: 3 per board; Resolution: 0,01% of full scale
Specific cable length on request.
