Series KTN-P

Reference Force Transducer Series KTN-P
– Force Transfer Standard for Calibration of Material Testing Machines

Referenz-Kraftaufnehmer Serie KTN-P – höchste Präzision von 2,5 kN bis 1,2 MN zur Kalibrierung von Prüfmaschinen

Reference Force Transducers of the KTN-P Series – Maximum Precision from 2.5 kN to 1.2 MN for Calibration of Testing Machines

The reference transducers of the KTN-P series are ideally suited for the calibration of material testing machines and are therefore specified according to ISO376 accuracy class with a very broad 0.5 measuring range of 5 % to 100 % of the respective nominal force range. The KTN-P series is of course based on the high-precision GTM transfer standard platform and is therefore part of the overall KTN series. The measuring cables are made of high-quality double shielded wires that are perfect for this high-precision application. The KTN-P series also boasts a broad spectrum of standard-compliant mounting adapters for pulling and pushing forces.

Typical users of KTN-P force transfer standards include companies that offer material testing machines.
