The sensor is extremely compact with an overall height of just 24.5 mm and features a large contact area with anti-slip surface.
Can be used in environments between -10°C and 40°C, with consistent readings even when the temperature fluctuates.
The anti-slip spherical loading surface minimises the effects of off-axis loading, ensuring consistent and reliable test results every single time.
Supplied with a universal mounting bracket, the sensor is easy to install on accelerator, brake and clutch pedals in almost any vehicle, and is also easy to remove.
Measure the amount of force applied to a brake pedal, as per SAE J2909 (Brake testing) and ECE R13H (Brake Assist Systems) standards.
Well now you can, with just one sensor. The VBOX Pedal Force Event Marker Interface connects inline between the Pedal Force Sensor and VBOX 3i data logger, triggering the start of a brake test as soon as any pressure is detected.
As soon as any pressure is applied to the brake pedal, the interface outputs a digital signal, which can be used to trigger the start of a test. It works in a similar way to a traditional brake pedal trigger, but also allows for the measurement of pedal force and does not need to be stuck to the pedal. Instead, it can be placed next to the VBOX 3i that it is connected to, or securely inside the VBOX carry case.
This gives you a complete solution which measures the amount of force applied to a brake pedal, as well as pedal application, in accordance with SAE J2909 (Braking) and ECE R13H (Braking Assist Systems) regulations.
The VBOX Pedal Force Event Marker Interface constantly monitors the pedal force sensor voltage and adjusts the trigger threshold. This accounts for any fluctuations in pedal force caused by changes in temperature of the sensor itself, preventing incorrect trigger activation.
*The pedal force transducer has a zero load output of approximately 0.1 Volts
The pedal force event marker interface is not designed to be connected directly to vehicle power. It connects to a VBOX 3i and gets power from this, as it requires theVBOX 3i power input protection.
