The Q1 series is a full-bridge, bonded foil strain gauge force sensor with an amplified output that offers electronic adjustment of the zero and span signals.

The robust and accurate transducer has a multi-beam internal design ensuring repeatable, high accuracy sensing even in the presence of unwanted side forces. The design and construction of the Q1 smart transducer makes it an ideal choice for a broad range of test and measurement tasks either as a stand-alone sensor or embedded in production/assembly machinery.


Available in a range of standard capacities of 200N and 500N; the Q1 is designed for both tension and compression force measurement.

Full stainless steel construction and hermetic sealing ensures long-term stability and ensures high performance even in applications requiring in excess of 1 million load cycles.

The Q1 is available with an 8-pin, M12 male connector that offers IP68 levels of environmental sealing.
