This is the ForceBoard™ base unit which is used in all our availbable products. It is a very robust piece of equipment which continuously measures reactive forces in full 2D. Use it with any of our other products or as a stand anlone unit to accurately measure static and dynamic friction, wear, flexural modulus, push/pull, torque, sense of touch and more! The base unit can also be installed together with external machinery in custom OEM applications.
