Force transducers (also called force sensors or load cells) are used for the reliable measurement of tension and compression forces. The force transducers from WIKA are manufactured using either bonded foil strain gauge or thin-film technology. Strain gauge force sensors offer a large geometrical variety and high accuracy, and are well suited for detecting even the smallest forces. The span of the measuring ranges stretches from 0.5 N to over 10,000 kN. Force transducers using thin-film technology are very cost-effective for special manufacture or OEM applications, and are ideal for safety-related applications due to their redundant output signals.

What is a relative reversibility error (hysteresis)?

A relative reversibility error is the difference between the output signals of an increasing and decreasing series at the same force, F, relative to the output signal less the zero signal with increasing force, in the installed condition.

What is a nominal characteristic value?

The nominal characteristic value is the output signal of the force transducer at nominal load in mV/V (with non-amplified measuring bridge) or in mA or in V (with integrated or mounted measuring amplifier, e.g. 20 mA or 10 V).
