Strain Sensors Measure Quality on Resistance Welding Machines

August 1, 2007 9:14 am | Product Releases | Comments

PCB Piezotronics’ JM240 ICP Ground Isolated Strain Sensors use piezoelectric sensing elements to indirectly measure dynamic and quasi-static stress forces on resistance welding machinery structures. The sensors feature sensitivity stability, repeatability, high resolution and long life. Mounted on a C-frame or actuator with a single screw keeps the sensor out of the current flow, and high electrical noise environments do not affect the ground-isolated design.
