Conax Pressure Seal fittings are designed to reliably seal an element that passes through a pressure or environmental boundary. High temperature and high pressure can be sealed, using an appropriate choice of seal material. Glands are available for single or multiple elements and one or more insulators may be included when electrical isolation is required. There are many standard options but special designs can be considered. Temperature probes can also be supplied.
STRAIN With over 600 different strain gauges listed as standard, the TML range offers a gauge for almost every application. From general purpose to high temperature, low modulus to high yield, and for metal, concrete, plastics and many other materials, Techni Measure are here to help you choose the right strain gauge. We also stock a wide range of Adhesives, Coatings, Terminals and Cables. Many gauges are available with integral lead wires, and a range of weldable type strain gauges help ease application in harsh environmental conditions.
VIBRATION Accelerometers for vibration measurements come in a multitude of shapes and sizes depending on the particular application. Dytran Instruments offer a range of transducers, mainly with IEPE electronics, for general purpose, shock, seismic, triaxial, industrial and many other applications. Special sensors for structural modal testing are supplied as well as DC sensors for static g measurements.
DISPLACEMENT Potentiometric displacement transducers from SAKAE are available from 10mm to 1,000mm F.S. Used as a simple voltage divider, these sensors give a full scale voltage output of the same level as the DC supply. Conductive plastic tracks offer long life and we have many special configurations available. Strain gauge transducers are offered, especially for Civil Engineering displacement measurements. We also supply non-contact sensors and from Schreiber comes a range of half bridge type inductive sensors, with or without built in electronics. MicroStrain manufacture a range of tiny displacement sensors for very fine measurements and Capacitec offer a range of capacitive sensors for very accurate gap measurements.
LOAD/FORCE Strain gauge load cells from TML, for weighing type applications, are available for tension and/or compression measurements from 1Kg F.S. to 1,000tf F.S. A wide range of general weighing type sensors, are also available from AEP and Scaime. From Dytran Instruments, comes the extensive range of rugged quartz piezo-electric transducers for dynamic applications involving impact or repetitive forces. These can be supplied with or without IEPE built in electronics. These sensors are also incorporated in the range of impact hammers used for force inputs during modal analysis.
PRESSURE Transmitters and switches from HUBA offer a large range for general purpose measurements from as low as 1 mbar F.S. up to 600 bar F.S. Vacuum ranges are also available, and there is a series of low cost sensors for OEM applications. From Dytran Instruments, comes the wide selection of dynamic piezo-electric sensors for any pressure application requiring a very fast rise time. These transducers are available with or without IEPE electronics.
POTENTIOMETERS Apart from the displacement sensors, SAKAE manufacture a very wide range of single and multi-turn rotary potentiometers utilising wirewound, conductive plastic, or hybrid technology. Supplying to customer drawings is a speciality, although there are many standard choices covering most applications. We supply potentiometer Joystick and Foot controllers as well as motorised systems.
MICROSTRAIN offer a range of wireless data acquisition systems for use with their own sensors or any strain gauge based or 3VDC output sensors. Thermocouple systems are also available and there is an energy harvesting system, specifically designed to operate on power obtained from environmental energy. Wireless sensors for vibration are available and all these are used in conjunction with a base station for input into a computer. MicroStrain also offer a range of orientation and inertial sensors.
