Oscillating-Wire Sensor

KC Sensor


DIGI SENS sensors measure the force (weight) using an oscillating wire. As in a guitar the wire is made to oscillate and oscillation frequency changes as a function of the tension. The tension changes proportionally to the applied force.

The integrated electronics excites the wire and converts the oscillation into a signal that can be processed directly.


The sensors are characterised by:
