Vishay-LC-GZ-10

SKU:   LC-GZ-10
Gozinta® Force Transducer

An innovative approach to sensor design combined with proven strain gage technology has resulted in a small, accurate stainless steel sensor with wide-ranging application possibilities. The Gozinta overcomes a number of current sensor problems and limitations such as installation ease, size, load limit, location and operating temperature conditions. In addition, the Gozinta has unchallenged application versatility and a wide range of machines, devices or structures can use Gozinta sensors as a cost-effective, accurate solution to sensing needs. The Gozinta sensor is mounted into the machine or structure and the sensor’s output can be calibrated to meet the system needs. As a result, the maximum load of the system is determined by the structure, rather than by the sensor. Sensitivity to thermal effects is minimal due to the Gozinta’s unique patented design. The Gozinta is configured with a full bridge circuit for low non-linearity, hysteresis and non-repeatability. A certain degree of care should be taken when positioning or locating the sensor in a structure. In addition, the number of sensors used in a structure, the amount of strain an individual Gozinta senses, and the material of the structure will affect the overall accuracy. Installation is optimized through the use of specific installation tools, supported by extensive application notes.
