For steering wheel torque verification, automotive seat testing or validating component specifications, force and torque sensors need to be high performance. ATI Industrial Automation’s Axia80 Force/Torque Sensor is a low-cost, six-axis sensor that offers some of the highest resolution, accuracy and stiffness available today to provide a realistic sense of touch to applications. The Axia80 measures all six components of force and torque, and the monolithic instrumented transducer features built-in electronics and silicon strain gauges. The electronics are built into the transducer body, which keeps the cost down and the footprint smaller, but with IP64 protection it is still a robust unit.
