Introduction

AMTI's MC3A 6-component strain gauge force/torque transducer is specially designed for the simultaneous and accurate measurement of the 3 forces Fx, Fy, Fz and the 3 moments Mx, My, Mz.

The MC3A is characterized by high rigidity and sensitivity, low crosstalk, excellent repeatability and long-term stability. Easy to install and operate, it is available in 4 measuring ranges: 440N, 1100N, 2200N and 4400N. The sensor body is made of high-strength anodized aluminum alloy and is corrosion resistant. The internal components are sealed with elastomer O-rings.

Specifications

Installation

With its small and practical dimensions, the 6-component force transducer MC3A is easily installed on machine tools, arms, or test benches. The introduction of forces and the attachment to the bench are carried out by 4 tappings on the upper and inner surfaces. The sensor is supplied with 5 to 10 VDC. The operating temperature range is -17 to 52°C. The output signal is not amplified. The sensor is delivered with a Souriau connector.

Packaging and acquisition

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

  • the GSV-8DS (High performance module, 8 analog inputs) or its ruggedized version GSV-8AS, which can be optionally equipped with a datalogger
  • the GSV-6LTE, equipped with a data logger and wireless connectivity

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
