Converts picofarad capacitance changes in the transducer into an amplified DC output voltage by means of a patented circuit. The transducer consists of a stiff beam suspended between two capacitor plates, forming a differential capacitor. Using this principal, the beam can be exceptionally stiff, approaching the ideal of measuring force without motion. The linearity is within +1% with a high DC voltage output and freedom from drift.
Included with the transducer:
- An integral short, rigid mounting rod with a groove that projects from the front
- A transparent, removable plastic shield (to prevent salt buildup which may damage the transducer circuit)
- An amplifier with an output that connects to any PowerLab
