Single element force sensors, advanced electronics and software produce a simple but powerful, cost-effective force measurement system. ELF systems are available for purchase in our online store.
Tekscan's ELF force and load measurement system matches the market's need for an inexpensive load and force measurement system with Tekscan's ability to deliver innovative load and force measurement solutions. The system consists of data acquisition hardware, software, and FlexiForce® B201 sensors.
ELF single handle, multi handle, and high-speed systems are available for purchase in our online store.
This system enables you to measure force from one point at a time.
The system components for the ELF System are as follows:
The Multi-Handle (MELF) system enables you to measure force from up to sixteen (16) points at one time.
The system components for the MELF System are as follows:
Additional Handles and Sensors are available to purchase separately from the ELF System.
*ELF handles starting with serial number 125 (see back of handle) are not compatible with ELF software 4.3 and above. ELF handles starting with serial number 126 are only compatible with ELF software 4.3 and above.
Residing within the plastic ELF handle is the data acquisition hardware with USB connection. This patented interface ensures optimal performance of our FlexiForce sensors. The simple insertion of a FlexiForce sensor yields a powerful measurement tool.
Our patented electronics allow you to optimize the performance of the ELF system over a selected force/load range. The electronics adjust the device sensitivity to best fit the dynamic range of the specific application. This allows you to "fine tune" our single element sensors for optimal performance. Designed to be user friendly, simple calibration procedures can deliver accuracies of ± 5%. More controlled procedures can reach an accuracy level of ±3%. The ELF's innovative electronics provide high quality signals at distances of up to 30 feet from the PC.
