Introduction

The 3-component force transducer K3D40 measures simultaneously the forces Fx, Fy, Fz on three perpendicular axes. The measurement ranges on each axis are between +/-2 N and +/-20 N, the overall accuracy is 0.5% (0.1% optional), and the sensitivity to transverse forces (crosstalk) is 1%.

The 3-component force transducer K3D40 is easily installed on machine tools, arms, or test benches. The introduction of the forces and the fixation to the stator/bench are carried out by 4 tappings M3x0,5, by respecting the tightening torques (see here). A distance of 1 mm must be kept between the adaptation parts and the sensor body.

The sensor is supplied with 5 VDC. The operating temperature range is -20 to 70°C. The output signal is unamplified (0.5 mV/V). The 3 output signals are decoupled by the design of the sensor, and correspond directly to the actual forces. No additional decoupling is required. The sensor is delivered with a 3m cable.

Specifications

The K3D40 sensor is available in 4 measuring ranges:

Model K3D40 (+/-2N) K3D40 (+/-10N) K3D40 (+/-20N) K3D40 (+/-50N)
Fx, Fy, Fz 2 10 20 50
Torque limit in each direction 5Nm 5Nm 5Nm 5Nm
Connectic Cable 3 m Cable 3 m Cable 3 m Cable 3 m
Material Aluminium Aluminium Aluminium Aluminium

Each sensor is delivered with a factory calibration certificate. Calibration to specific measuring ranges is possible (optional), as well as ISO-17025 calibration.

Packaging, Acquisition

The acquisition of the raw measurement signals is done with

  • a PC or PLC acquisition system equipped with a strain gage bridge input card
  • or via a conditioning module for strain gage bridge with analog or digital output, then a PC or a standard acquisition system.

PM Instrumentation recommends the GSV series of digital interface conditioning modules for their ease of use and accuracy:

  • the GSV-4USB (Conditioner / acquisition module, 4 analog inputs) or its Bluetooth version GSV-4BT M12, which can be optionally equipped with a data logger
  • the GSV-8DS (High performance module, 8 analog inputs)
  • the GSV-6LTE, equipped with a data logger and wireless connectivity

The GSV-1A4 conditioner is equivalent to the GSV-4USB, with 4 analog outputs instead of one serial output.

A visualization and acquisition software is included with these modules (GSV-multi). Dll and VI files are also provided for the development of an application under Labview or in C / Visual Studio / C++ / .net

Applications

The 3-component force sensor K3D40 is ideal for robotics, production, material or medical applications such as

  • Teach-in detection of presence or error
  • Force controlled operation
  • Friction measurement
  • Ergonomic measurements
