The Automotive Sensors division of PCB Piezotronics released a series of pedal effort load cells for automotive test applications, including brake development, drivability, vehicle handling, and legislative and safety testing. Designed to measure the force required to operate a vehicle’s primary brake, clutch, or floor-mounted emergency brake pedals, the Series 1515 brake pedal effort sensor with integral cable is compact, with a 1.19” (3.02 cm) overall height. It is designed to be easy to install and remove, and is temperature-compensated for +30°F to +130°F (-1°C to +54°C). The brake pedal effort sensor is designed with high overload protection (500 percent of FS), and an integral loading surface that rejects off-axis loading errors. These sensors are offered in a broad range of capacities, and provide good resolution, linearity, and repeatability in both static (constant force) and dynamic (panic stop) loading events.
