PCB Piezotronics introduced an In-Process Force Measurement system, which consists of a Series M240 ICP Strain Sensor and Model 410A01 ICP signal conditioner featuring Peak Hold. The Peak Hold feature allows older PCL systems to stay in synch with high-speed production cycles. The Model 410A01 CIP signal conditioner captures and holds the peak reading until aPLC can scan for the value. A solid-state relay resets peak hold value, ensuring high reliability force measurement for fast machine cycles. The high-resolution analog output (0V to 5V DC) can be directly correlated to units of force.
