Main features & Overview


Strain link sensors picks up surface-strain between the 2 mounting locations.

The strain occuring between the mounting areas is mechanically amplified inside of the sensor.

The integrated AC amplifier supplies a signal that needs no reset -> the signal drops even if the load remains present.

Ideal for very fast cycles where a reset between the cycles is not possible.

The controler only needs to measure the output signal periodically.

Thanks to the rugged design, this sensors are used in heavy industrial environment.


  • Amplifies the strain between the 2 mounting areas mechanically
  • Ideal for tension mode
  • With integrated AC coupling amplifier (active)
  • For Dynamic applications (even fast)
  • Ideal on fast running Presses
  • Solid steel housing (IP54)
