Presentation

The LW-2T-50K Wheel Force Transducer (WFT) is capable of measuring all of the wheel forces and moments on Class 8 trucks. It provides independent output signals for vertical, lateral, and longitudinal forces as well as camber, steer and torque moments. The system is completely weatherproof making it ideal for on-road and off-road measurements. It can also be used to monitor and control laboratory tests. One sensor measures the combined loads for a dual wheel set or a single tire.

Installation and Data transmission

The matching Amplifier / Slip Ring package easily mounts onto the transducer. It amplifies and digitizes the transducer signals before they pass through the slip ring.

CT2 Transducer Interface Box:

  • Performs real-time coordinate transformation and crosstalk compensation
  • Easy to use Zero, Shunt Calibration, and Bridge Power Off functions
  • Simultaneous Analog, CAN, & Ethernet signal outputs
  • Embedded web page enables user to change set-up options, move WFT measurement origin, view transducer static values, create .dbc file

Amplifier and Slip Ring Package:

  • Internal X & Z accelerometers
  • High resolution encoder for position & speed measurement
  • Internal smart chip contains all calibration, zero, & shunt values
  • Provides signal conditioning & amplification to the transducer strain gage signals
  • Digitizes Transducer, Encoder, & Accelerometer signals
  • Supports slip ring
