PCB Piezotronics Announces New Triaxial Force Sensors

May 17, 2011

The 261A Series dynamic force link sensors provide installation simplicity and convenience.

DEPEW, NY -- PCB Piezotronics, Inc., a global leader in vibration, acoustic, pressure, force, and torque sensors, is pleased to announce the introduction of the 261A Series Triaxial Force Link Sensors from the Test and Measurement Division. Simultaneously measure dynamic and quasi-static forces in three orthogonal directions (X, Y, and Z axes). The sensors are used in biomechanical research, modal analysis, cutting tool forces, automotive chassis dynamics, force limited vibration testing of aerospace structures, and force dynamometers.

Series 261A are conveniently provided in a preloaded flange mount configuration allowing easy eight screw installation and feature full scale measuring ranges from 500 lb. to 4,000 lb. (2.2 kN to 18 kN in the X and Y directions, and from 1,000 to 10,000 lb. (4.5 kN to 45 kN) in the Z direction in three mechanical envelopes. All ranges are available in a choice ICP or change output versions as well as English or metric threaded mounting threads.
