We often have to manufacture redundant force transducers where the safety level is imposed by a standard according to the application (see SIL / PL ready).
In this example, we developed a standard force transducer (high accuracy force transducer) with a double output for another use.
In this case, SENSY has manufactured a standard force transducer with two independent and isolated measuring chains. The first provides a raw mV / V signal from stain gauges wired in Wheatstone bridge for an accuracy indicator, and the second provides an RS-485 digital signal for PLC in order to monitor the applied force...
