RMGZ200 – Compact force sensor for stranding machines with low wire tension

  • Special design for rotating applications
  • Integrated angle adjustment mechanism
  • Nominal forces from 10 to 200 N (2.25 to 45 lbf.)

Designed to meet the requirements of smaller and higher-revolution planetary and tubular type stranders, the force sensor of the RMGZ200-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.
