X-Y load pin

BROSA X-Y load pins represent an enhancement of the tried and tested BROSA load pins. They make it possible to determine the resulting force in relation to forces in the X and Y direction. It is possible to further reduce the complexity of the construction by integrating two measuring systems. Possible parasitic influences are thus reduced to a minimum. 

There are various applications in which our force measuring MEMS pins are used:

  • Guide rollers
  • Cable end
  • Chassis
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Hydraulic/npeumatic cylinders

But of course, many other applications are conceivable.

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

  • Integrated amplifier (4-20mA, CANopen, optional CANopen Safety)
  • 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%
  • 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
  • Protection class IP69
  • Customized connections (cables and connectors)
