Basics of force sensors


Accuracy force sensors

Here you will find explanations of the terms accuracy class, measurement uncertainty, linearity deviation.

Resolution of force sensors

The achievable resolution depends essentially on the choice of the measuring amplifier. As a rule, 1 / 10,000 to 1 / 100,000 of the measuring range can be resolved.

For a 2N sensor this means a resolution of 0.2mN is possible with the measuring amplifier GSV-8.

Lifespan of sensors

The operating life of sensors with strain gauges depends on materials, processing, type of load and environmental influences...

IP Code IP68

Notes on the degree of protection

Accuracy of 6-axis sensors

For multi-component sensors, crosstalk is an essential component of the accuracy that can be achieved.


The glossary explains the technical terms from the data sheets according to DIN standard.

Standards for measuring technology

Here you will find an overview of the relevant standards used in metrology.
