Kui Gan, Hong Jiang, Hongjiang Chen, Hao Zhang, William Huang


This paper describes a new study about the temperature behaviour of force transducers. A special force transducer with a PT100 for temperature measuring was developed by GTM. The curve of heating was created, and test data indicates the time for attaining the stable temperature. Meanwhile the different sensitivity of the transducer under different temperatures was obtained, thus the temperature effect on characteristic value per 10 K (so-called TKc) was calculated. At the end, the correction of force transducer at different temperatures was made by the TKc factor of temperature.
