Case Study

monitoring the seismic force of a suspension bridge

The array of use cases of force measurement are wide-ranging across many industries. Interface Mini Load Cells are frequently used to measure minute forces in precision medical devices, while our jumbo precision load cells rated for 2,000,000 pounds of force (lbf) are used to measure the force of rocket thrust.

Sensors are essential in innovation, with a dependency on accuracy and reliability that impacts lives and ingenuity.

Interface recently completed another extraordinary force measurement solution for a large-scale infrastructure project. Interface engineering and solution experts created custom load pins to measure the seismic force on the replacement of the Gerald Desmond Bridge. There are interesting details that give a perspective on how force is used to provide safe passages.
