Three-component Force Sensor HM 170.40

Three-component Force Sensor

Type: HM 170.40
Name: Three-component Force Sensor

A drag body or a lift body for HM 170 is placed in the force sensor. The force sensor delivers measured values of drag force and lift force of a body immersed in a flow. Additionally, the moment is recorded.

The measured values are digitally displayed on the measuring amplifier. They can evaluated in the optionally available system for data acquistion HM 170.60.

The force sensor is fitted with an angle scale.
