Bestech Australia have introduced the DZ-1 stress sensor from Lorenz. This sensor can be used for weight and level control, for press-in force control and for control of material stress. The sensor is easy to assemble at the measuring object, and can be installed supplementarily without production loss.
The measuring range for the stress sensor is 60N/mm2 (MPa), and the accuracy is to within 0.5% of full scale. The maximum dynamic load is 70% of full scale. Position feedback is less than 0.13mm. The DZ-1 stress sensor requires a supply voltage of 2V to 12V and has a nominal temperature range of 0ºC to 60ºC. Temperature coefficients of sensitivity and zero point are ±0.02% full scale/K. The sensor is of stainless steel construction and is protected to a level of IP65. A protective housing is an optional accessory.
