The LW9.5-HS Wheel Force Transducer (WFT) is capable of measuring all of the wheel forces and moments on forklift trucks or other heavy vehicles with small wheels. It provides independent output signals for vertical, lateral, and longitudinal forces as well as camber, steer and torque moments. The system is completely weatherproof, making it ideal for testing in all conditions. It can also be used to monitor and control laboratory tests.
The matching amplifier package easily mounts onto the transducer. It amplifies and digitizes the transducer signals before they pass through the slip ring. The amplifier package also includes X and Z accelerometers and performs remote shunt calibration of the transducer.
The CT2 Transducer Interface Box performs real-time coordinate transformation and cross-talk compensation, and outputs analog, CAN, and Ethernet signals. An embedded web page allows the user to configure the WFT system.
