HBM’s line of force sensors is available with a memory module designed to store sensor properties, greatly simplifying the process of configuring a force measurement system. These sensor are designed with a cable of the required length, an appropriate connector plug for the amplifier, and a transducer electronic data sheet (TEDS) module. A TEDS module speeds the system configuration process by having the individual characteristics of the force sensor, including sensitivity, nominal force, supply voltage, serial number and transducer type saved to memory when the sensor is delivered. The amplifier system reads the chip automatically and configures the measurement module with the correct sensor data, effectively eliminating entry errors and allowing users to begin making measurements right away. HBM force sensors are delivered ready to install, including the appropriate plug and a cable in a length suitable for the application that has been tested for function and insulation resistance.
