The Y1 is a series of miniature force transducers designed for applications in general test and measurement as well as machine monitoring and control.

The threaded construction enables the Y1 to be easily assembled into equipment under test where both tension and compression forces require monitoring.

Overview

Available in a range of standard capacities from 50N through to 5000N; the Y1 is a full-bridge, bonded foil strain gauge transducer that provides excellent long-term stability and ensures high performance even in applications requiring in excess of 1 million load cycles.

Constructed from high grade stainless steel and protected from moisture with an epoxy bonded cover, ensuring excellent long term performance in harsh environments.

The Y1 can be supplied with standard cable configurations or with industry standard connectors. As an additional aid to system integrators, the Y1 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.
