Force Measuring Actuators
Force measuring option available with Exlar GSX and I Series actuators.
Exlar offers select models of its GSX and I Series actuators with integral force measuring capability. This option is available in the GSX30, 40, 50 & 60 models and the I30 and 40 models.
In both product lines a load cell is embedded within the actuator allowing it to directly measure the force being applied by the actuator’s output rod. The strain gauge load sensor used to measure applied force is mounted inside the actuator’s case, protecting it from external damage and guaranteeing accurate and consistent force data.
A separate connector is supplied for connecting the internal load cell to an external strain conditioner/amplifi er required to excite the strain gauge sensor. Alternatively, Exlar can offer strain gauge conditioners to provide a high level output signal, either 0-10V or 4-20mA. Alternatively, any one of numerous conditioners/amplifi ers available can be used for this purpose.
