Loadstar Sensors’ iPedal brake testing solution includes a sensor and an interface with optional application software to improve use with digital USB or analog 0-5 V dc output. The aluminum sensors are designed to measure brake force at accuracies up to 1%, minimize error due to off-axis loads, and improve brake testing efficiency. Signal conditioning and communications are integrated into the sensor itself, and iPedal is offered with the company’s DS-3000U Display & Controller to provide real-time readings and a PC connection option. Users can log data and export to an Excel file for further analysis. The iPedal Analog outputs a linear, 0.5 to 4.5 V dc signal proportional to the applied load.
