Pretensioned piezoelectric 6-component force/torque link with two mounting flanges. Measures forces and reaction torques in both tensile and compression directions. A force or reaction torque generates a proportional electrical charge. This is transferred by an electrode to the corresponding connector.
The force/torque link consists of large-area quartz discs and is therefore very rigid. The resulting high natural frequency is a prerequisite for high dynamic force and torque measurements. The two 3-pole V3 neg. connectors are provided with an antitwist lock. One connector each for force and torque signals. After it has been correctly installed the force/torque link is immediately ready for use without recalibration.
