CZ – Compact force sensor with flexible installation options for rolls without shaft

  • 25 mm shaft journal for standard bearings
  • Nominal force ratings from 50 N (11lbf) to 1500 N (330 lbf)
  • Options include high temperature and vacuum chamber (to 10-7 hPa) construction
  • Measuring range 20:1, accuracy class ±0.5%
  • Overload protection rating of 10-times nominal force, stainless steel sensor body

The CZ-Series force sensor offers compact dimensions and flexible installation options, and are designed for the measurement of tension on continuous material processing lines where idler rolls with integrated bearings without shaft are utilized. The product can be supplied with a Pilot or without a Pilot at the back the unit. In addition, flexible mounting options include the ability to install the unit utilizing either four fasteners from the front or a single fastener from the rear. The included dowel pin can also be incorporated between force measuring bearing and the machine frame to ensure proper unit orientation. For installations where a Pillow Block mount is required the optional bracket can be utilized. The shaft journal of 25 mm diameter accepts standard bearings.
