Bestech Australia specialises in providing a comprehensive range of measurement and control technology to different markets. They present the compact K3D120 force sensor/load cell, from ME Systeme. This load cell measures forces in three orthographic axes, giving information on not only the magnitude of the force, but also the direction and component forces. Capacities for this model range from ±50N to ±1000N in all three axes, and can also be manufactured with different capacities.
The force sensor features a compact construction with a base of 120 x 120mm and a low profile, standing only 30mm tall. A 3 m twin twisted connection cable is included, and cross talk between channels is low. The force sensor has an analog output of 1mV/V in all three axes and can take an overloading of more than 300 percent in all axes. This multi axes force sensor is available in Australia and New Zealand from Bestech Australia Pty Ltd.
