Testing micro-switches

during continuous mass production

  • Non-linearity as low as 0.1 % F.S.
  • Low overall height
  • Easy to provide overload protection
  • Can measure tensile and compressive loads


The requirement is to test the characteristic curve of micro-switches on the production line. This quality assurance measure requires a load cell with overall height and overload protection, which safeguards the load cell from damage caused by an inadmissibly high operating force in a faulty switch. A set-screw limiting the travel of the 8511 load cell provides overload protection. The measurement displacement is measured alongside the operating force, and the force/displacement curve analyzed by a DIGIFORCE® 9311 connected to the sensors.
