Force measurement in biology
Our newly developed Biological Force Meter is based on highly professional piezoelectric force sensors. There are two different piezoelectric sensors in our choice. One of the sensors has got a full scale of 5 N, and the other sensor has got a full scale of 15 N. The Biological Force Meter can accept both of our sensors, because it has got a changeable interface option for this purpose in the instrument. The actual decision, which sensor is the optimal choice, should depend on the application itself.
The pictures, and the final specifications of the Biological Force Meter will be published soon. Actually the validation process have been running.
The measurement range (the type of the sensor) should be specified in the order.
Full scale: 5 N, or 15 N
Display: 7-segment LCD display with green backlight
Analogue voltage output: 1 V / 10 N
The Downloadable detailed mechanical, and electronic specification of the 5 N force sensor is available.
The Downloadable detailed mechanical, and electronic specification of the 15 N force sensor is available.
An example of the application-specific force measurement: Calibrated pain stimulator, and force meter pinch for pharmacological (pain killer) research with 30 mm2 contact pads.
