RDKAfSENS DKA compression force transducers are the ideal choice when, for structural reasons, sensors with minimal height can only be used.The fSENS DKA compression force transducers can be supplied with either an external or integrated amplifier and are available with a cordless interface.

In addition to closed versions (fSENS DKA) there are also versions available with ring design (fSENS RDKA), which are typically used in situations where bolt replacements or "dead end" installations are not feasible due to construction constraints.

Typical applications include: load moment indicators or rated capacity indicators on cranes and winches, weight control or other force measurements on vehicles or vessels.

A range of predefined standard products for several load intervals from 10 to 100 tons are also available.

In case of special mechanical requirements or differing interface specifications, individually customized versions are available and can be designed for specific applications.
