General purpose force sensors from the company measure dynamic compression, tensile, and impact forces in a wide variety of applications. The sensors are available in both ICP® and charge output types and measure full-scale compression forces from 10 to 5,000 lb (45 N to 22k N) and full-scale tensile forces from 10 to 500 lb (45 to 2,200 N). Applications include drop and impact testing, material testing, fatigue testing, biomechanics, and modal analysis force input. ICP® force sensors contain built-in microelectronics to convert the high impedance charge to a low impedance voltage, which is said to eliminate the need for expensive charge amplifiers and low noise cables. Charge output versions are also available for higher temperature applications.
