Shear Beams

Shear beams with strain gauges measurement technology

Shear beams are ideal for measuring switching or actuating forces. They are firmly screwed to the application on one side of the beam and the force is applied as vertically as possible on the other side. The force measurement is carried out by the double beam measuring principle. This makes these force sensors largely insensitive to the displacement of the vertical force application.

We rely on proven strain gauge technology, which leads to precisely defined relative resistance changes of the strain gauges used when force is applied to the measuring cell. Thanks to the Wheatstone bridge circuit, temperature and lateral force influences are optimally suppressed. External measuring amplifiers (IMA2DMS) are available as accessories for signal amplification.

Shear beams for force measurement are suitable for tensile and compressive force application, but are usually calibrated for only one direction of force (compression). This means that if they are calibrated for compressive forces, they also react to tensile forces, but do not output exact measured values. For the implementation of special measuring tasks, our many years of experience and our broad application know-how are at your disposal for the optimal design-in; and this even for small quantities.
