Compression fittings

DescriptionCompression fittings

If the sensor is subjected to compression, you can create an excellent bearing surface by using compression fittings to provide a coupling surface for the force. The compression fitting consists of a cylindrical body and a bearing-mounted head that fits on the body. In addition to providing a large, flat surface, the compression fittings are able to compensate for eccentric loads.
 

Compression fittings are provided for the following sensors:

Software QuickAnalyzer

DescriptionSoftware QuickAnalyzer

Many of our measurement amplifiers provide the option of collecting and recording measurement data in real time on a PC. QuickAnalyzer offers the broadest functional scope of all the SIKA software solutions and is compatible with a large number of our measurement amplifiers.

The software allows for quick and easy configuration of sensors and measurement amplifiers from a PC. Eight input channels can be monitored and recorded simultaneously. In addition to measuring force and weight, they can be used to record other input quantities such as torque, distance, pressure etc. A zoom function to allow detailed examination of the measurement curve and a function for exporting data are just two of the many features of QuickAnalyzer.

QuickAnalyzer is available for the following measurement amplifiers:

 

Weighing modules

DescriptionWeighing modules

Specifically adapted to our load cells, SIKA weighing modules form the best design basis for optimal measurement. The base plate with sensor mount provides an even and secure seating for the load cell. Clean load coupling is enabled by a compression fitting and the bearing-mounted top part of the module.

Integrated lift-off protection offers security. It prevents the top part of the weighing module from coming loose from the bottom part in the case of a tipping load. A special advantage is easy sensor replacement. If it needs to be replaced, the entire weighing module can be raised and locked using adjusting screws, even under load. In this way, the sensor can easily be removed and replaced.

These modules were specially developed to simplify the assembly of weighing and dispensing systems and for tanks, containers, silos, and stationary or vibrating funnels. Our weighing modules feature load self-alignment, lateral displacement compensation and height adjustment.

Weighing modules are provided for the following sensors::
