INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS FOR THIN BEAM FORCE SENSORS

Careful design considerations must be taken into account when mounting the TBS-MK-1 and the TBS-MK-2 Series thin beam force sensors. The sensor's performance is dependent upon the mechanical interface. All thin beam load cells require mounting clamps to create a double bend during loading as shown in figure 1. This illustration is exaggerated to show the clamp's effectiveness in producing opposing moments that create the double bend. An electrical output is generated as the double bend causes tension and compression on the sensor.
Beam load cell specification figure 1
Two typical mounting arrangements are shown below. For high accuracy applications, reinforcement plates should be slightly harder than the beam material, and the interfacing corners should be sharp. Due to low loads and sensor construction associated with the TBS-.25 thru TBS-2, inline loading (Type 2 ) is not recommended.
