PBT Sensors

Exceptional sensing performance. Specifically designed for Wire harness industry and small gauge wire by OES.

  • Up to 10 times the resolution of current sensing methods for better defect detection.
  • Proven more sensitive then ceramic or quartz piezoelectric sensors.
  • The PBT sensing element is mounted directly over the crimping tool for optimum sensor performance and eliminating possibility of “shunting” of the force signal.

A true plug and play

  • The PBT sensor can be designed as a substitute machine component.
  • The PBT sensor life expectancy exceeds 10 million cycles under normal use.
  • The PBT sensor has a 4X over-range capacity of the calibrated force range. This ensures sensor survivability and reliability for varying operational conditions.
