FM 200

Pinch Force Measurement System for sunroofs, powered window lifters and tailgates

Safety ensured by Pinch Force Measurement

The FM 200 from Drive Test is an electronic pinch force measuring system for power driven automotive sunroofs and windows. Typical use includes R+D and production testing in the automotive industry. The FM 200 is now also increasingly used by technical safety agencies. Combining rugged construction with precision, the advanced mechanical design delivers exact measurements, even after years of service in an industrial environment. The FM 200 has been tested and certified by the German TÜV Nord.

Fast and easy performance of repetitive measurements is an important aspect of standard test scenarios. Drive Test has responded to this requirement by developing software which streamlines the measurement process and drastically reduces documentation effort. Measurements can be downloaded to a PC, analysed, exported and documented with a minimum of user interactions. Our PinchPilot Software provides also interface like Microsoft® DLL or National Instruments® LabVIEW for remote control in automated environments.
