Courtesy: HBM, Inc.The U9C and C9C lines of flexible miniature force transducers come in more than 480 configurations. They can be used in many applications, including measuring contact forces in ultrasonic welding, calibration of hardness testing machines, testing Bowden cables, and more. HBM U9C force transducers measure static and dynamic tensile and compressive force, while C9C force transducers can be used to measure static and dynamic compressive force. The transducers are made from stainless steel and are hermetically sealed to protect against dust and water and meet the IP67 standard. Both the U9C and the C9C can be individually configured to meet many different application requirements, including both the cable length and the connector type. The connectors can be equipped with a TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) chip that stores the sensor data.
