The LW-2T-50K Wheel Force Transducer (WFT) is capable of measuring all of the wheel forces and moments on class 8 trucks. It provides independent output signals for vertical, lateral, and longitudinal forces as well as camber, steer and torque moments. Completely weatherproof, it is ideal for on-road and off-road measurements in all weather conditions. It can also be used to monitor and control laboratory tests. One sensor measures the combined loads for a dual wheel set or a single tire.

When using an outboard slip ring, the amplifier package easily mounts onto the transducer. It amplifies and digitizes the transducer signals before they pass through the slip ring. Michigan Scientific Slip Ring Assemblies are known worldwide for their signal quality and robust design.

The CT3 User Interface Box performs real-time coordinate transformation and crosstalk correction, and provides CAN FD, CAN2.0, and Ethernet signal outputs. EtherCAT and analog signal outputs are also available with optional modules. An embedded webpage accessed via USB allows the user to easily configure the WFT system. A front display indicates important information and prompts the user with instructions.
