Product Details Supplier Info More products

Global Sensor Technology (GST) offers a range of force, load and pressure sensors and transducers. Force sensors exist for loads up to 600kN and frequency responses up to 70kHz.

The force transducers are piezoelectric devices and come in compression-only and combined tension and compression configurations. Specialist tri-combination force, tension and compression devices are also stocked.

Force sensors are supplied in annular ring (through-hole), compressive disk and inline threaded designs.

Other GST products

  • Loadcells (weight transducers) are supplied for loads of up to 2,000kN. They come in canister, compressive disk, annular (through-hole) and beam designs and some have integral LED load read-outs. All loadcells are strain-based devices.
  • Two types of pressure transducers are offered: piezoelectric pressure sensors and strain-based pressure sensors. Pressures of up to 200MPa can be measured with frequency responses of up to 200kHz.
  • Impedance heads (combined force and acceleration sensors) are also stocked, for modal analysis and structural testing purposes.
  • GST supplies several types of impact hammers for force introduction of up to 60kN. Each impact hammer is supplied complete with a matched piezoelectric force transducer.
