Different transducer bodies can be exchanged and set and zeroed to the same bridge amplifier at the touch of a button. After a simple calibration with an appropriate weight, the system is ready to use.

 

Options

Part # Size
SI-KG2 0-2N, 0-200g

Mounting Devices

A variety of convenient fiber mounting devices are available in two lengths and two shaft diameters.

Length:

  • The 32mm length is ideal for standard, isometric forces.
  • Choose the 22mm length when using a motor.

Shaft diameter :

  • Use the 0.8mm for the KG4 and KG7B force transducers.
  • Use the 0.5mm for the KG4A and KG7.

The KG2 have unique mounting devices.
