An automotive manufacturer needs a force testing system for their door and window seals. Their seals have an integrated anti-pinch electrical system that activates depending on the forces applied to the seals (in case of someone’s finger or head getting caught). They need a system that will be able to measure and display the forces applied in real time.
Interface’s solution is to install a 1101 Compression-Only Ultra Precision LowProfile® Load Cell to the customer’s test stand. When connected to the INF-USB3 Universal Serial Bus Single Channel PC Interface Module, the forces applied will be displayed and logged onto the customer’s PC computer or laptop.
The automotive manufacturer was able to successfully determine the force measurements that activated their doors, windows, and sunroofs anti-pinch system.
