RMGZ300 – Compact force sensor for stranding machines with medium wire tension

  • Compensation of centrifugal and Coriolis forces
  • Nominal forces from 50 to 1000 N (11 to 225 lbf)
  • Overload protection up to 10 x nominal force
  • Measuring range 20:1, accuracy class 0.5 %

Designed to meet the requirements of planetary and tubular stranders, a force sensor of the RMGZ300-Series is also applicable to bunchers and twisters. The innovative dual flexion beam construction provides the foundation for accurate and reproducible measurements in difficult operating conditions. Once the load rating and housing configuration are properly specified for the application, the sensor is easily mounted to the machine with two fasteners. A single cable (power in / signal out) is connected at the sensor housing. Standard pulleys are not supplied by FMS.
