|Quartz Force Sensors are recommended for dynamic force applications. Measurements of dynamic oscillating forces, impactor high speed compression/tension under varying conditions may require sensors with special capabilities. Fast response, ruggedness, stiffness comparable to solid steel, extended ranges and the ability to also measure quasi-static forces are standard features associated with YMC quartz force sensors.
Applications include matrix print-head studies, drop testing, machinery studies, punching and forming operations, impact testing, fatigue testing, fracture analysis, and materials testing.

Note: IEPE Low Impedance Quartz Force IEPE Sensors incorporate a built-in microelectronic amplifier to convert the high impedance charge output into a low impedance voltage signal for recording. IEPE sensors, powered from a separate constant current source, operate over long ordinary coaxial or ribbon cable without signal degradation. The low impedance voltage signal is not affected by triboelectric cable noise or contaminants. Quartz charge mode force sensors with fallen insulators can be used at operating temperatures up to 200°C. YMC can offer charge mode force sensors.
Ring-style sensor configurations measure dynamic compression. Tension measurements are also possible if the unit has been installed with proper pre-load. The through-hole mounting supports platform, integrated link, and support style installations using either a through-bolt or the supplied stud. Versions offering full-scale measurements of 500 to 500k N compression are available. Tension range is dependent upon the amount of applied pre-load and strength of mounting stud used. Applications include tablet presses, stamping, punching and forming operations, balancing, machinery studies, and force-controlled vibration testing.

Three-component quartz force ring sensors are capable of simultaneously measuring dynamic force in three orthogonal directions (X, Y, and Z). They contain three sets of quartz plates that are stacked in a preloaded arrangement. Each set responds to the vector component of an applied force acting along its sensitive axis. 3-component ring force sensors must be statically pre-loaded for optimum performance. Pre-loading provides the sensing elements with the compressive loading required to allow the proper transmission of shear forces. Versions are available with ranges up to 50k N in the z-axis (perpendicular to the top surface), and up to 10k N in the x-and y (shear) axes. Both IEPE and charge output styles are available.
Three-component force links eliminate the preload requirement of 3-component quartz force ring sensors, and offers a convenient, 4-screw hole mounting plate on each side end the sensor. Quartz 3-component force links are constructed by installing a 3-component force ring sensor, under pre-load, between two mounting plates.
