The HELM HT400 STRAIN GAIN load sensing transducer accurately detects strain levels on all types of metal stamping presses. Using either drill/tap or weld/pad mounting method, the sensor is installed directly to upright columns of straight side presses or throat area of OBI and Gap Frame presses. When interfaced with HELM monitoring systems, linear output of strain levels at each sensing location are displayed on digital meters.
Strain gages in a 350 ohm full wheatstone bridge circuit are used as load sensing elements to assure long-term stability and accuracy. Manufactured under laboratory conditions, all HT400 sensors are machined within 1% and may be interchanged without recalibration of the press.
