FS13CXK-x-ICATechnical specificationsApplications

The Montronix force sensors of the series FS1xCXK-x-ICA are piezoelectric force transducers, which are available as single axis or three axes sensors in different types (cable outlet straight/angled). A high sensitivity and a low drift characterize the FS1xCXK-x-ICA sensors.

Equipped with an integrated charge amplifier (ICA) it affords a low-impedance signal output. The mounting will be realized within milling pockets or between force platforms, which are located within the machine structure directly and thereby in the load path. The FS1xCXK-x-ICA sensors will be used particularly for the detection of collisions, missing tools, and tool breakages.

The FS1xCXK-x-ICA force sensors are excellent suited for industrial monitoring applications due to its compact design, the fixing with only one bolt, the robust construction, and selectable measuring ranges.
