The ISA is a series of miniature force transducers designed for applications in general test and measurement as well as machine monitoring and control.

The compact design enables the ISA to be easily embedded into machinery or test equipment – ideal for packaging machinery, assembly machinery or end-of-line test equipment.

Overview

Available in a range of standard capacities from 1lb through to 10lb; the ISA is configured for tension and compression force measurement. Full-bridge, bonded foil strain gauge technology provides excellent long-term stability and ensures high performance even in applications requiring in excess of 1 million load cycles. The ISA built-in overload protection operates in both tension and compression modes.

Constructed from high grade aluminium, the sensor is protected by means of a stainless steel cover.

The ISA can be supplied with standard cable configurations or with industry standard connectors. As an additional aid to system integrators, the ISA can be supplied as a TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) enabled smart transducer this provides an on board memory chip storing manufacturing and calibration data.
