Inductive Force Transducers

  • Dan Mihai Ştefănescu


There is a great variety of induction coil sensors. The designs for coils with air or ferromagnetic cores are compared, their frequency properties are analyzed and various methods for output signal processing are presented in [4.1]. It is our aim to estimate their usefulness in force measurement.
