The right force measurement tool is important in obtaining accurate results. The application determines the right tool. For example, an application involving grip measurement requires a device that can conform to the surface of the hand. A bulky, heavy force measurement device would interfere with the application and produce inaccurate data; a thin, flexible, lightweight force sensor would be ideal.
Complete Force Measurement System
Tekscan’s ELF™ (Economical Load and Force) System is a complete force measurement device, comprised of thin, flexible FlexiForce™ sensors, data acquisition electronics, and software. ELF is available in both tethered and wireless versions and offers options such as adjustable gain, simple, storable calibration, and multi-point force measurements.
The ELF System is ideal for test engineers or QA/QC engineers looking for a quick, easy, inexpensive way to measure force in a test and measurement application.
Turn your PC into a force measurement instrument with FlexiForce sensors, USB-interface ELF electronics, and Windows-compatible ELF software.
Capture force measurements wirelessly, at distances up to 65 meters, with FlexiForce sensors, a wireless ELF transmitter, and Windows-compatible ELF software.
