Our range of isometric force transducers (strain gauges) are used with the NL109 Bridge Amplifier. We also have an optical-based XY Ergometer (NL280), which has been developed to measure the force generated by drosophila during genetic knockout studies of insect muscle.
NL61 – Isometric Force Transducer (25g – 1500g)
Available in a variety of ranges, these isometric force transducers can be used with the NL109 Bridge Amplifier, to provide you with a simple means of measuring force alongside other parameters of interest. They offer low deflection, high output sensitivity, a high overload range and versatile mounting options. Ranges Available: +/-25g, +/-55g, +/-110g, +/-220g, +/-450g, +/-1000g and +/-1500g (If ordering, please ensure required range is stated)
NL62 – Dual Cantilever Beam Transducer (2kg – 50kg)
Available in a variety of ranges, the NL62 offers an excellent size/performance ratio, at a competitive price. The dual cantilever design enables the rejection of off-centre forces, making it suitable for a number of applications requiring measurement of forces beyond the limits of the NL61. The transducer is wired for connection to our NL109 Bridge amplifier. Ranges Available: +/-2kg, +/-5kg, +/-10kg, +/-30kg, +/-50kg (If ordering, please ensure required range is stated)
NL63 – Medium Range Single Point Load Cell (100kg – 250kg)
The NL63 is a medium range anodised aluminium single point load cell, which has been specifically deigned for platform weighing applications, although it is equally suited to other weighing and force measurement applications where high accuracy is required from a low range product. The NL63 is suitable for use in platforms with sizes up to 400mm x 400mm. It is environmentally sealed as standard to IP67. The transducer is wired for connection to our NL109 Bridge amplifier. Ranges Available: ±100kg, ±150kg, ±200kg, ±250kg (If ordering, please ensure the required range is stated)
NL280 – XY Ergometer
Developed for research into jump forces generated by drosophila, the NL280 XY Ergometer comprises a flexible light pipe, photodiode detector and a NeuroLog module which powers the emitter/detector and outputs the voltage signals which correlate with the movement of the light beam. The light pipe and detector are designed to be mounted on Narishige magnetic stands which we also supply. This product was featured in our newsletter.
