7003/4/5/10 - Isometric Force Transducers

Isometric Force Transducers Isometric Force Transducers

The three available models 7003-7004-7005 cover the force range from 0 to 50 g (see table in the related leaflet).

The three available models 7003-7004-7005 cover the force range from 0 to 50 g (see table in the instrument’s leaflet).

The force exerted on a holllow carbon fibre beam is converted into proportional electric signal via strain-gauges conveniently wired in Wheatstone bridge circuit.
 
Can be connected to any data acquisition system (e.g. Ugo Basile Data Capsule, iWorx, Powerlab, Biopac, etc), once the correct connector is provided.
 
    FEATUREBENEFIT
    Wide range of forces (0.8-50g) Different sensitivities/capacities for different experiments
    Sturdy construction and adjustable offset Life-time lasting
    Ample choice of connectors Can be used with virtually any data acquisition system

    Before ordering, check the connection compatibility of your amplifier/recording system.

    The Isometric & Isotonic Transducers are normally supplied with a connector designed for Ugo Basile Data-Capsule-Evo Recorder (see datasheet).

    If the customer wishes to make use of other recording apparatus, the transducers can be supplied with appropriate connectors on request: we will be glad to provide transducer with different connectors, if available, or to provide wiring information and instruction.
