Wireless ELF™ 2 System
Wireless Load and Force Measurement
Wireless electronics, software, and force sensors enable your laptop or PC to capture and store force data.
The Wireless ELF 2 System is a user-friendly, cost-effective load measurement system. This system combines 3 FlexiForce® WB201 sensors, battery-operated WiFi transmitter (certified 802.11b radio- 802.11b/g/n compatible), and Windows-compatible software*, turning your PC or laptop into a force measurement instrument. The WELF2 system, sampling rates up to 200 Hz and comes in a high speed version with sampling rates up to 6,000 Hz. The WiFi connection setup has ad hoc and access point (unsecured router) network capability. For multi-handle use an unsecured router is required.
*Compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7

For more detailed information on the Wireless ELF 2 System, including how to set it up and take force measurements, please download the ELF User Manual.
The Wireless ELF 2 system comes complete with three WB201 FlexiForce sensors (one in each of the three available force ranges):
WB201-L: Low (0 - 25 lb; 111 N)
WB201-M: Medium (0-150 lb; 667 N)
WB201-H: High (0-1000 lb; 4450 N)
The sensors are terminated with a male square pin to easily connect to the Wireless Transmitter.

Recommended Maximum Force
|Sensor||Max. Force||Max. Force|
|(High Gain)||(Low Gain)|
|Sensor||Max. Force||Max. Force|
|WB201 - L||0 - 1 lb (4.4 N)||0 - 25 lb (111 N)|
|WB201 - M||0 - 25 lb (111 N)||0 - 150 lb (667 N)|
|WB201 - H||0 - 150 lb (667 N)||1 - 1000 lb (4448 N|
(Adjustable gain feature of the Wireless ELF 2 System allows you to set force ranges)
Typical Sensor Performance
Linearity (Error): < ±3% (Line drawn from 0 to 50% load)
Repeatability: < ±2.5% of Full Scale (Conditioned Sensor, 80% of Full Force Applied)
Hysteresis: < 4.5 % of Full Scale (Conditioned Sensor, 80% of Full Force Applied)
Drift: <5% / logarithmic time (Constant Load of 90% sensor rating)
Response Time: < 5 µsec (Time required for the sensor to respond to an input force; Impact load - recorded on Oscilloscope)
Operating Temperature: 15°F - 140°F (-9°C - 60°C)*
* Force reading change per degree of temperature change = ±0.2% / °F (0.36%/°C)
* For loads less than 10 lb, the operating temperature can be increased to 165° F (74° C)
