Miniature button force sensor XCM-137
Miniature button force sensor for measurement of compressive forces in the range of 5 – 500kg. Compact size Ø 19 x 9 mm for use in confined spaces.
The XCM-137 force sensor is a very compact load cell that is ideal for measuring compressive force in the range of 5 – 500kg. The design offers space-saving dimensions of Ø 19 x 9 mm and can be used in the smallest spaces. This allows easy handling and quick integration into machines and test equipment. The force is applied centrally via the spherical force application button.
The miniature force sensor provides a linear signal, proportional to the centrally applied compressive force. The direction of force should act from above on the strain gauge sensor (compression force).
- With spherical force application button for force application
- Low overall height for space-saving installation
- Available for compression forces from 5 kg to 500 kg
The force sensors from X-Sensors are based on a strain gauge full bridge with strain gauges. The output signal for this sensor is specified in mV/V. Various input modules of controllers already allow the direct connection of force sensors with strain gauge full bridge.
Additionally, measuring amplifiers with voltage output (0-10 V) and current output (4-20 mA) are available, which amplify the strain gauge full bridges accordingly. The measuring amplifiers are available in a robust field housing or for DIN rail mounting. Brand new is the compact inline amplifier X-201-IN09 from X-Sensors, which can be used universally for static and cyclic measurements and offers an excellent price-performance ratio.
Mechanical connection / design
The advantages of button compression force sensors are the easy mounting and the precise force application via the sensor. This type of force sensor is suitable whenever compressive force is to be measured. The flat design of the load cell has the perfect characteristics for installation in confined spaces. The various load cells are universally applicable and are used in the fields of measuring and testing technology, industrial process control, press-in force measurement, machine control, special machine construction, tool construction, and machine condition monitoring.
The mounting of the force sensors with spherical load introduction knob is fast and uncomplicated. The sensor is screwed on from below on one side and then measures the force acting on the button. A custom version for screwing from above is available. The surface on which the force sensor is mounted must be flat and sufficiently rigid to not deform during loading.
We would be happy to help you choose the right sensor
and look forward to hearing from you!
