The 3-axis force sensor K3D160 is suitable for measuring force in three mutually perpendicular axes. Available capacities range ±2kN to ±50kN for each of the 3 axis, and can optionally be manufactured in other measurement ranges.

The force sensor is made of high-strength tool steel, nickel plated. It stands out due to its particularly compact structure, with an area of 160mm x 160mm and a low total height of just 66 mm.


K3D160 3-axis force transducer can be delivered with 5 measuring ranges:

Model K3D160 (±2kN) K3D160 (±5kN) K3D160 (±10kN) K3D160 (±20kN) K3D160 (±50kN)
Fx, Fy, Fz [N] 2000 5000 10000 20000 50000
Max moment 1kNm 1kNm 1kNm 2kNm 2kNm
Connector/Cable 5 m cable 5 m cable 5 m cable 5 m cable 5 m cable
Housing Steel Steel Steel Steel Steel

A calibration certificate is delivered with each transducer. The calibration can be procedeeded on customer specific measuring range (option), as well as an ISO-17025 certificate (option).

Data acquisition

PM Instrumentation offers amplifiers and data acquisition solutions for 2 cases:

  • PC or PLC based data acquisition is equipped with a I/O board with strain gage channels
  • PC or PLC-based data acquisition has only a communication port (CAN, Serial, etc...)

PM Instrumentation recommends the force transducers amplifiers with digital interface of GSV series:

  • GSV-4USB (amplifier + acquisition, 4 analog input channels, USB interface) or Bluetooth version GSV-4BT M12, with optional datalogger
  • le GSV-8DS (high perfornance DAQ module, 8 analog inputs channels)
  • le GSV-6LTE, with datalogger and wireless interface

GSV-1A4 amplifier is similar to GSV-4USB, yet with 4 analog output and no communication interface.

A software for data visualisation and acquisition (GSV-multi) is provided with the data acquisition modules. A SDK including dll and VI files are provided as well free of charge for application development with Labview or C / Visual Studio / C++ / .net environments.


Example application of 3-axis K3D160 areas include

  • force measurement in production processes
  • force control in handling machines
  • force measurement in assembly processes
  • three-dimensional load measurement.
