ForceBoard™ i-Motor is a very robust, programmable and high precision motor developed specifically for the ForceBoard™ system which is controlled via our software ForceBoard Analyzer . The advanced i-Motor allows you to setup and run fully automated test cycles, for example for coefficient of friction testing, linear wear, scratch and tensile/compression/fatigue testing.
