Shear Beam (Bending Beam) Load Cells

Shear Beam (Bending Beam) Load Cells

Bending beam (Shear-beam) force sensors with strain gauge measurement technology

Bending beams (Shear Beams) are ideal for measuring switching forces or actuating forces. They are firmly screwed to the application on one side of the beam and the force is applied as vertically as possible on the other side. The force is measured using the double bar measuring principle. As a result, these force sensors are largely insensitive to displacement of the vertical force introduction.

We rely on proven strain gauge technology, which leads to precisely defined relative changes in resistance of the strain gauges used in the event of changes in shape due to the introduction of force on the measuring cell. Thanks to the Wheatstone bridge circuit, temperature influences and lateral forces are optimally suppressed. Our ‘KM’ series provide a standard mV/V output requiring external signal conditioning. Our ‘KT’ series feature an integrated signal conditioner allowing for analog 0 – 10V or 4 – 20mA output signals. Bending beam force load cells are suitable for tensile and compressive force introduction, but usually only calibrated for one direction of force (pressure). This means that if the bending beams are calibrated for compressive forces, they also react to tensile forces, but do not output any exact measured values. Our many years of experience and our broad application know-how for the optimal design-in are available to you for the implementation of special measuring tasks, even for small quantities.
