Low uncertainty for comparison measurements up to 20 MN

To help test houses and laboratories improve their measuring capabilities, Hottinger Brüel and Kjær (HBK) has launched the C5 reference force sensor range, which can be used for intercomparisons between calibration systems or as a reference transducer, for calibration machines with hydraulic force generation.

The sensor range can be adjusted to suit the particular force measurement task, for example with a bending moment bridge to help determine the condition of calibration systems whilst in operation. Users also have the choice between a plug or a cable to facilitate integration. An optional transducer electronic datasheet (TEDS) provides guidance on adjustments to the sensors.

The C5 achieves class 00 under the ISO 376 standard, between the measurement range 40 and 100 % of its nominal force covering large capacities between 5 MN and 20 MN. This ensures the calibrated instruments, used for the verification of uniaxial testing machines, provide accurate results.

HBK also offers a complete range of solutions for reference measurement technology within the high-load range, including world-leading high precision amplifiers and high-end calibration services.
