Transducers from Harvard

Isometric and Isotonic transducers for isolated muscle preparations

Harvard Transducers are generally available with connectors to suit Harvard, Hugo Sachs,
Grass or Gould amplifiers. Adaptors to connect to the BIOPAC Data Acquisition System are also available.

Harvard Research Isometric transducer

Harvard Research Isometric transducers

A low-compliance force transducer with a dedicated amplifier.

  • Three models available: 0-5, 0-50, 0-500 g force
  • Each model also has x10 range (giving 0-0.5, 0-5 or 0-50 g force)
  • DC plug pack powered
  • Integral 3-digit display shows output voltage
Harvard Research Isotonic transducer

Harvard Research Isotonic transducer

A very low-torque rotational transducer for isotonic measurements.

  • Dedicated amplifier, DC plug pack powered
  • Supplied with balance pan and weights
  • Integral 3-digit display shows output voltage
Harvard-Hugo Sachs Force Transducer

Harvard-HSE Force Transducer

The Harvard-Hugo Sachs F30 transducer is a very sensitive isometric force transducer for use with very small preparations.

  • Range ±30 g with resolution ±2 mg
  • Displacement < 1 um/g
  • High sensitivity version available (±10 g at 6 um/g)
  • Rugged; low seismic sensitivity
Harvard-Hugo Sachs Force Transducer

Harvard-HSE Force Transducer

The Harvard-Hugo Sachs K30 transducer range measures with low displacement.

  • Four models: ±30 g; ±100 g; ±300 g; ±1000g force.
  • Low displacement (±1 to ±3 mm)
  • Robust; ideal for teaching
  • Vernier positioning controls available for exact prestretch
Harvard-Hugo Sachs Lever Isotonic Transducer

Harvard-HSE Lever Isotonic Transducer

A large displacement, low force transducer ideal for smooth muscle preparations.

  • Large linear measuring range of ±20 mm; friction torque only 0.1 mN cm
  • Easy calibration
Harvard UF1 series

Harvard UF1 Isometric Transducer

The popular UF1 series of load cells comprises rugged accurate transducers for force measurement.

  • Six ranges: 0 to 25, 55, 110, 220, 450 and 1000 g force
  • Full bridge circuit adaptable to most amplifiers or BIOPAC data acquisition system
Harvard Strain Gauge Transducer

Harvard Strain Gauge Transducer

A very low displacement series of force transducers, using thin-film bonded strain gauges.

  • Five models: 0 to 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000 g force
  • Full bridge circuit adaptable to most amplifiers or BIOPAC data acquisition system
Harvard Battery-powered Transducer

Harvard Battery-powered Transducer

This rotational transducer uses an optical vane and phototransistor, powered by an internal long-life mercury cell.

  • Lever is 90 mm long; output is linear over 50º of rotation
  • Eight holes on 5mm pitch allow attachment of preparation
Harvard Isotonic Transducer

Harvard Isotonic Transducer

This traditional isotonic transducer has a rotating lever sensed by a graduated optical vane.

  • Lever is 90 mm long; output is linear over 50º of rotation
  • Supplied with spring and anchor post
