How the Tension Force Sensor Works

With the development of science and technology, industrial products are also gradually developing, and tension force sensors are gradually applied in various fields. Let TGCG introduce to you what a tension force sensor is and how it works.

Ⅰ. The definition of tension force sensor

Tension force sensor, as its name implies, is a sensor that collects tension signals. Tension force sensor is an instrument used to measure the tension value of the coil in the process of tension control. When it is subjected to external pressure, the resistance value of the strain gauge will also change, and the value of the change will be proportional to the value. It depends on the magnitude of the tension; the micro-displacement type is to apply a load through an external force, so that the leaf spring is displaced, and then the tension is detected by connecting the transformer. Since the displacement of the leaf spring is extremely small, about ±200um, it is called micro-displacement. Type tension detector.

Ⅱ. The working principle of the tension force sensor

Tension loadcells are made of crystals, and crystals are anisotropic, while amorphous is isotropic. Some crystalline media, when deformed by mechanical force in a certain direction, will lead to a polarization effect; when the mechanical force is removed, it will return to an uncharged state, that is, when subjected to tension or pressure, a certain These crystals may cause an electrical effect, which is called the polarization effect. Scientists developed a tension force sensor based on this effect.

Ⅲ. Application range of tension force sensor

1. Wire, cable and narrow-band tension detection and control

Wire, cable tension detection and control; stretch fabric textile tension control; SF narrow belt tension force sensor use; SF narrow belt tension force sensor.

2. Tension control in paper, film, printing, and textile fabric processing industries

Tension force sensor is used in textile fabrics; cantilevered live wheel is used in printing; paper coating machine tension detection; blown film production line tension control and amplifier; tension force sensor closed-loop control system; rewinder tension control.

3. Pivot table tension detection and control

Pivot-type tension load cell sensor coil detection; pickling annealing spool-type tension load cell sensor tension control.

The above is what TGCG shared for you, what is the tension load cell sensor, and the working principle of the tension load cell sensor is introduced. I hope it will be helpful to you. If you want to know more about the sensor, please continue to pay attention to us.
