RD 3 Force curves for Damper testing: Force Curve Imperial            Force Curve Metric                                   


RD 3 Specification Sheet: RD3 Spec Sheet


* Force is measured by High precision Interface 3K S-Beam load cell with integrated cable

     - option for a pancake style based on non-linear loading requirements


* CTW designed 3 stroke crank head for frequency variation in testing

   using either Imperial or Metric spacing - defined at time of order

     - 0.5" / 1.0" / 2.0" strokes or

     - 25-40-50mm option

     - custom strokes available


* Peak velocity up to 40 in/sec on the maximum stroke

     - ultimate force / velocity determined by the damper and piston

     - Linear design will vary from digressive


* Peak forces based on damper design and CTW determined velocity


     - 1600+ lbs. at 10 in/sec


* CTW designed 4 channel signal conditioning board capable of accepting

   various sensor inputs for ultimate flexability to the user

     - Displacement, Force, Temperature standard


* Data sampled at 16 bit resolution via CTW specified data card


* Position adjustable non-contacting IR temperature sensor

   - Allows for Temperature based warm-up


* Precision 1.25" shafting designed for high strength and low weight


* Input power supply options

  - 200/240 VAC I / III phase power (US)

    - on I phase 24 Amps / on III phase 15 Amp service


  - 380/440 VAC III phase power (European)

    - 9 Amp service

  * III phase power required for peak force and velocity
