132 – Variable Force Transducer- TSD105A
Force transducers are devices capable of transforming a force into a proportional electrical signal. The TSD105A force transducer element is a cantilever beam load cell incorporating a thin-film strain gauge. Because the strain elements have been photolithographically etched directly on the strain beam, these transducers are rugged while maintaining low non-linearity and hysteresis. Drift with time and temperature is also minimized because the strain elements track extremely well due to the deposition method and the close proximity of the elements. The TSD105A also incorporates impact and drop shock protection to ensure against rough laboratory handling.
