LFM-A
Compact 6-component Force Transducer

Summary

The LFM-A is a 6-component force transducer. It enables simultaneous measurement of 3 components of force (Fx, Fy, Fz) in 3 axial directions and 3 moments (Mx, My, Mz) around the axes.
Rated Capacity: 1 kN, 3 kN
Diameter: 66 mm
Nonlinearity: Within ±0.5% RO

Features

• Compact & lightweight
• High sensitivity
• Most suitable for relatively simple experiments

To Ensure Safe Usage

To Ensure Safe Usage
Prepare a plate for installing the LFM-A with sufficient strength.
It is recommendable that LFM-A-3KN should be applied on the steel plate whose thickness
is more than 10 mm. With same reason, we recommend as follows. LFM-A-1KN should be applied on an aluminum alloy board which is not less than 15 mm thick. If the LFM-A is installed on a low rigid mounting plate, interference may be increased.
