Force Measurement Close to the Physical Limit

TOP sensors from HBM are used when standard reference sensors reach their limits and fail in calibration tasks and reference measurements.

TOP Transfer Reference Force Transducer: Transfer Standards for Comparison Measurements

The TOP Transfer sensors measure tensile and compressive force up to 500 kN and provide an accuracy close to the physical limit. They can be used in international inter-laboratory comparisons, top-level comparison measurements, and exceptionally precise test equipment.

HBM experts take special sensors of the Z30A and Z4A type series from the current production and subject them to extensive testing to ensure TOP Transfer series’ high quality. Only sensors that meet the high technical requirements of the TOP series are approved as TOP Transfer. Therefore, TOP Transfer reference force transducers exceed the requirements of the highest accuracy class (00) specified in ISO 376, partially by a factor of up to 10 and offer outstanding repeatability.

  • Accuracy class (ISO376): 00
  • HBM accuracy class: 0.015
  • Capacity: 100 N to 500 kN

Highest accuracy level

  • Exceptionally high measurement quality, due to select TOP Transfer force transducers and technical properties close to the physical limit
  • Accuracy exceeds the requirements of Class 00 specified in ISO 376 for tensile and compressive force, partially by a factor of up to 10
  • Guaranteed minimum measurement uncertainty of comparison measurements in your calibration machine
  • Very well suited for international comparison measurements
