Presentation

The LW12.8-60 High Strength Wheel Force Transducer (WFT) is capable of measuring all of the wheel forces and moments on passenger cars and light duty trucks. It provides independent output signals for vertical, lateral, and longitudinal forces as well as camber, steer, and torque moments. Being completely weatherproof, it is ideal for on-road and off-road measurements in all conditions. It can also be used to monitor and control laboratory tests. The matching amplifier package easily mounts onto the transducer. It amplifies and digitizes the transducer signals before they pass through the slip ring. The amplifier package also includes X and Z acceleration outputs and performs remote shunt calibration of the transducer.
