Strain sensors measure deflections, for example of steel arms, in various directions. In this way, forces, weights or vibrations can be indirectly recorded. Conventional strain sensors are hard to install and put into operation. Due to its optimized connection technology, the assembly of the DMS can be very well integrated into the production process. In case of servicing, the sensor can be replaced on site. As the calibration data is adopted, the replaced strain sensor can be put into operation without requiring alignment, meaning that the system can be made ready for operation again within a very short time.
The DMS is characterized by its high repeat accuracy from sensor to sensor. In addition, it has a digital (CAN bus) and analog output signal and is extremely robust.
