MK Button Force Sensor (100N – 150kN)

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

The low profile, small diameter design enables the MK 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 wide range of standard capacities from 100N through to 150kN; the MK is configured for 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.

Constructed from stainless steel and protected from moisture with an epoxy bonded cover.

The MK can be supplied with standard cable configurations or with industry standard connectors. As an additional aid to system integrators, the MK 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.
