Usage/Specification Quote/Delivery Repair/Calibration


IMADA Force-Displacement Measurement Unit FSA series can be used for tactile test, material evaluation and more.
The high speed sampling rate 2000 Hz captures accurate values and draws a detailed graph of force and displacement.
The unit includes a force gauge, a test stand with a linear scale, a cable and a graphing software.
The capacity is from 2N to 2500N.

Simple Setup
You mount the force gauge on the test stand and connect them by the cable. You can perform force-displacement measurement by using with necessary fixtures and connecting external equipment according to your needs.

High Speed Sampling Rate 2000Hz for Capturing Values and Drawing a Graph
The high speed sampling rate 2000Hz captures accurate values and draws force vs displacement graph in detail.

Easy Report Creation
The included software supports your report creation. You can perform zooming a specific area, adding comments, graph layering (up to 5 graphs) and more. Moreover, the created graph can be directly exported as Word, Excel and PDF file.

Auto Data Recording
Graph drawing automatically starts and stops at set force/displacement or external signal.
