FM 300

Pinch Force Measurement System for Elevator Doors

Safety ensured by Pinch Force Measurement

The FM 300 from Drive Test is an electronic pinch force measuring system for power driven elevator doors. 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 300 has been tested and certified by the German TÜV Nord.

Sites with multiple elevator doors call for fast and easy performance of repetitive measurements. Drive Test 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.
