The FM 207 is a system for measuring the closing force of electric windows in automobiles. The FM-207 is used for development, validation, approval or inspection (end of production, approval or technical inspection) of the window system.

The construction is robust and the measurement is precise and stable. The maintenance consists of an annual or biannual recalibration according to the user's standards.


  • Measuring range: 0/500N
  • Accuracy: +/- 3 N (0-100 N) or +/- 3 % (>100 N)
  • Max. gap (relaxed): 70 mm
  • Min. gap (limit stop): 15 mm


Operation is quick and easy and requires no training. Measurements are triggered and recorded using the supplied console.

Configuration, visualisation, measurement evaluation and automated test report generation are performed using the Pinch Pilot PC software supplied with the FM-207. The system can be easily interfaced with a PLC, a supervisory software, allowing for easy automation of the verification process.


The PinchPilot operating software for Windows PCs includes a dedicated mode for measuring on vehicles with multiple doors. The measurement results can then be displayed and printed in tabular form or stored in a database. Microsoft® DLL or National Instruments® LabVIEW libraries are also included for fully automated remote control.
