hpower is offering the world’s first integrated force sensor for high power actuators. As an additional option for hpower actuator, the sensor element is fully integrated into actuator’s casing, making it possible to directly and precisely measure both static and dynamic forces up to 10kN. The force sensor allows you to characterize the performance of the actuator set up by the relationship of stroke, frequency and force therefore enabling you to further finetune your set up. The integration of the sensor directly into the actuator’s casing gives your further space for you application and avoids direct mechanical links.
The integrated force sensor for hpower actuators is available for the series VS25, VS35 and VS45. The measurement system is individually calibrated to the desired force range. The maximum measurement range lies between 0 and +5kN in compression and 0 to 10kN after special calibration. The force detected by the sensor element is then converted to an analog output voltage (0…+10V) by a separate signal amplifier. The amplifier electronics are integrated in a robust metal casing with compact dimensions. All connectors are easily accessible from the front. The device comes with a 12V power supply.
