Durham Instruments can supply multi-axis force sensors from Interface, a leading provider of load cells, torque transducers, instrumentation and accessories designed to meet force and torque sensor measurement needs. The selection available in Canada from Durham Instruments includes the company’s 3AXX three-axis load cells, and its 6AXX six-axis load cells.
Designed to minimize eccentric loading effects and crosstalk between channels, the three-axis load cell model simultaneously measures forces in three mutually perpendicular axes — X, Y and Z. Each axis provides an output of 1mV/V and requires no mathematical manipulation. Various capacity ranges and sizes are available, with each of the three axes providing the same capacity. The company also has the capability to provide custom-designed load cells if varying capacities, higher temperature capability or OEM/private labelling are needed.
The six-axis load cell measures forces simultaneously in three mutually perpendicular axes and three simultaneous torques. Six full bridges provide mV/V output on six independent channels. To calculate the load and torque values in each axis, a 36-term coefficient matrix is included. In addition, an eight-channel amplifier with USB PC interface is available to simplify data analysis.
The compact, three- and six-axis load cells are ideal for use in many industrial and scientific applications, including aerospace, robotics, automotive and medical research.
These are just some of the Interface products available from Durham Instruments. As a leading supplier of measuring instruments, the company carries a wide selection of products from Interface and many other leading manufacturers.
