Shear force sensor

BROSA shear force sensors are constructed on the basis of the shear beam principle and can be easily adapted to local conditions and requirements. Thanks to their small dimensions, the shear force sensors can be easily retrofitted, both in situations with low installation heights and where an installation was originally not planned. The rugged construction made of high-quality stainless steel makes the shear force sensors extremely reliable in continuous use.

There are various applications in which our shear force sensors are used:

  • Production lines
  • Torque supports
  • Lifting platforms 

By default, our force measuring pins offer additional features in addition to a customized design:

  • Integrated amplifier (4-20mA, CANopen, optional Safety, PROFINET, optional PROFIsafe)
  • Design capable of sustained operation
  • Temperature compensated from -40 ... + 80 °C 
  • High EMC resistance of 200 V/m 
  • No zero drift, i.e. no re-calibration required 
  • Consistent accuracy over the entire temperature range
  • Design for tensile and / or compressive forces
  • Load limit 150% and breaking load 300% of the nominal load
  • Security classification PL c / SIL 1
  • Protection class IP66 / IP67 in accordance with DIN EN 60529
  • Calibration of reproduced installation situation including test report

As an option, our sensors also offer the following advantages:

  • Increased border and breaking load, for example 300/500%
  • Temperature compensated to + 160 °C
  • Fault insensitive to magnetic fields up to 300 mT
  • Redundant design
  • Performance Level d (e) in accordance with ISO 13849
  • SIL 2 (SIL 3) in accordance with IEC 61508
  • ATEX Ex i
  • IECEx certification
  • Protection class IP69
  • External amplifiers
  • Customized connections (cables and connectors)
