Load Cell - Shark Bite Force Measurement (171)

Application Summary

Measuring the bite force of a shark was no easy task. But the engineers at Peacock Productions designed a test platform to accomplish this for Shark Week 2017. Their setup mounted several LTH500 donut load cells into a mold that simulated a shark's prey. When the shark bit down upon the mold, our sensors captured the force applied.

Products in Use

Three LTH500 Donut/Through Hole Load Cells paired with a 4 Channel Summing Junction Box (IAC200) and a Digital Hand Held Display (IHH500)

Shark Bite Force Measurement
How it Works
  1. Using several LTH500 Donut/Through Hole Load Cells, engineers were able to measure the applied force.

  2. This output was then summed with the IAC200 Summing Junction Box and sent to the IHH500 Digital Hand Held Display where the test engineers monitored and logged all resulting data.
