Montronix force sensors RetroBoltSG-Mxx are single-axis, strain gauge force sensors available in various configurations. By integrating a preamplifier, RetroBoltSG-Mxx sensors provide excellent sensitivity and a low-impedance, practically drift-Iess signal output.
Mounted by a single bolt in a package together with solid shims, a RetroBoltSG-Mxx sensor measures the strain on the bolt head. This strain is caused by internal forces (compression and tension) of the manufacturing process. Thus, the RetroBoltSG-Mxx sensors offer real force monitoring without having to make any changes to the machine. They are particularly suited to detect collisions as weil as missing or broken tools.
Their small size, their single-bolt mounting, and thelr robust construction make the RetroBoltSG-Mxx force sensors perfectly suited for industrial monitoring applications.
