FM 100

Pinch Force Measurement System for Doors and Gates


Safety ensured by Pinch Force Measurement

The FM 100 from Drive Test is an electronic pinch force measuring system for power driven doors and gates. Typical applications include final inspection of new installations, and periodic conformance testing of existing equipment.

Combining rugged construction with precision, the advanced mechanical design delivers exact measurements, even after years of service in an industrial environment. The FM 100 has been tested and certified by the German TÜV Nord.

Sites with multiple doors and gates call for fast and easy performance of repetitive measurements. DriveTest has responded to this requirement by developing software which streamlines the measurement process and drastically reduces documentation effort.

Measurements made on a complete site can be entered, printed as a table, and stored in a database with a minimum of user entries.

Our PinchPilot software provides also interfaces like Microsoft® DLL or National Instruments® LabVIEW for remote control in automated environments.
