ForceBoard™ PowerMotor is a DC motor assembly which allows you to move test samples at a controlled speed (for example when measuring friction, adhesion or tensile forces) and has a built in displacement sensor so that you also can conduct force vs. displacement testing  just like you do in a tensile tester (for both tension and compression) in 2D!


If your application requires a programmable motor for automated testing check out our software controlled i-Motor!
