ForceBoard™ Base Unit is a very robust and patented measurement device which continuously measures forces in full 2D, even if it is mounted upside down. Use it with any of our other products or as a stand anlone unit to accurately measure static and dynamic friction, wear, compression, push/pull, torque, sense of touch, tactile friction and more!
ForceBoard™ Base Unit can also be installed/integrated in external machinery for custom OEM applications.
