Where to Find 50 New Force Measurement Application Notes
One of the advantages we have at Interface is that our application engineers and solutions experts are constantly recommending Interface load cells, torque transducers, instrumentation and accessories for a wide range of projects and programs. In this fortunate position, it enables our team to explain why and how these solutions work through a series of illustrative application notes. We detail the problem statement, the products required to achieve the desired outcome, and the measurable results in every Interface application note.
The purpose of our app notes is to show the range of capabilities for products we offer, as well as inspire product designers, engineers, and testing professionals to expand how they use sensor technologies. We also increased our industry solutions to highlight a growing interest of how our products are used in agriculture, maritime and infrastructure force and torque measurement projects.
In 2021, Interface produced a record 50+ new application notes. We have so many application notes, we even produced a first ever complete Interface Applications Catalog. The type of applications we detailed this year range from space docking to golf swing testing, with everything in between. You can find applications for livestock weighing, crash wall testing, crane safety regulation and even commercial fishing line tests.
Every application note includes a graphic that highlights how the test project is designed and how the products work together. All our illustrated application notes can be found here. We also have a collection of animated application notes you can watch here.
So if you didn’t keep up with every application note we added this year, here is a quick reference:
