The model AP8 is a very low capacity, compact force transducer ideal for a range of measurement tasks.

The low profile, compact design ensures measurement tasks are straightforward even in confined spaces within assembly machinery or test equipment. Perform highly accurate measurements of compression forces with ease by utilising the simple mounting arrangement and the central load introduction facility.

Overview

Full-bridge, bonded foil strain gauge technology provides excellent long-term stability and ensures high performance even in applications requiring over 1 million load cycles.

Available with a range of cable types, cable lengths and connectors. As an additional aid to system integrators, the AP8 can be supplied as a TEDS (transducer electronic data sheet) enabled smart transducer. This feature provides an on board memory chip storing manufacturing and calibration data.
