Illustrated Application Note
Bike Load Testing
During the final production testing process, a mountain bike manufacturer wants to test their bike frames load capacities to ensure it’s high quality and frame durability.
A mountain bike manufacturing company wants a system that measures their bike frames load capacities and vibrations on the frame. They want to ensure the bike’s high quality and frame load durability during this final step of the product testing process.
Interface suggests installing Model SSMF Fatigue Rated S-Type Load Cell, connected to the WTS-AM-1E Wireless Strain Bridge , between the mountain bike’s seat and the bike frame. This will measure the vibrations and load forces applied onto the bike frame. The results will be captured by the WTS-AM-1E and transmitted to the customer’s PC using the WTS-BS-6 Wireless Telemetry Dongle Base Station.
The mountain bike manufacturing company was able to gather highly accurate data to determine that their bikes met performance standards through this final testing.
