Machine Specific


Machine Specific


  • Highly responsive sensors custom fit for even the most challenging crimp force monitoring applications

Highly Sensitive

  • A versatile high performance sensor developed specifically for crimp force monitoring and is ideally suited for small gauge, low force crimping applications.
  • Provides a high resolution crimp signature for superior defect detection
  • More sensitive than quartz or piezoelectric sensors

True “Plug and Play”

  • The PBT sensor is a complete substitute of the existing Ram Adapter
  • Proven to be stable and reliable in challenging production environments
  • Exceeds the high level of performance expectations for crimp force monitoring

Ram Adapter Replacement

  • Simply swap-out the existing Ram Adapter or (T-shank holder) for an identically shaped PBT Force sensor
  • The PBT Force Sensor detects the dynamic compression that is exerted through the Ram Adapter region, above the applicator tool, during the terminal crimping process

No More Shunting Effects

  • Overcomes the limitations of conventional sensors including the risk of edge loading, overloading and shunting
  • Shunting occurs when forces bypass (or are transferred in parallel to) the sensor and proceed into the base of the press.
  • Shunting negatively impacts a crimp force monitors effectiveness and this is a risk when using mechanically mounted sensors

Developed & Patented by OES

  • PBT sensor technology has been developed by OES specifically to address the needs of the wire crimping industry
  • PBT Force sensors work exclusively with the ForceWorx and ForceView line of crimp force monitors

PBT typically includes:

  • PBT Force Sensor
  • Connecting cables
