HBM adds new force sensor to IP68 range


Measurement technology provider HBM has expanded its range of IP68 rated products with the new stainless steel C10 force sensor which provides maximum precision in compressive force measurement in even the most demanding of environments.

The new sensor offers 75 ppm/10k and presents excellent linearity and hysteresis values. A variety of options allow the configuration of the sensor’s accuracy classes between 0.03 and 0.06, and the nominal force from 2.5 kN to 1MN.

The sensor’s core is optimally protected from external influences such as dirt and moisture in a stainless steel measuring body, which comes complete with an optional integrated cable to achieve IP68 rating.

HBM’s U10M range of transducers, which can measure nominal (rated) forces from 1.25-500kN and are suitable for use in ambient conditions, provide high levels of accuracy and also feature the option of an integrated cable to achieve IP68 protection. 

The U10M is the only flat-shaped force sensor on the market to attain this level.
