GTM granted patent for force-acceleration transducer


GTM has released its patented combination force-acceleration transducer that allows compensating for acceleration forces in dynamic measurements on test rigs.

The DR Series force-acceleration transducer merges the force transducer and two or more MEMS acceleration sensors with different sensitivity characteristics. Usually, this is handled by a single acceleration sensor attached to the force transducer, adaptor or specimen.

One of the sensors possesses high sensitivity at low acceleration rates in the low frequency range, while the second sensor conducts readings at greater acceleration rates in frequencies in the kilohertz range. An option to attach further sensors to extend the scope of application is possible.

Nominal force compression/tensions of between 1.5kN-500kN and 50kN-2mN can be measured.
