Resistance Conversion Unit
Quantify characteristics of electro-mechanical products
Using the Resistance Conversion Unit in conjunction with the TA.XTplus Texture Analyser's multi-channel data acquisition capability enables the characterisation of electro-mechanical products by measuring and analysing the force-distance and resistance-distance characteristics co-incidentally.
Typical applications include:
• The push button and membrane micro-switch, where the measurement of the change of electrical resistance during depression is measured.
• The characterisation of a conductive gasket as it is compressed, to measure the force required to reduce its electrical resistance so that it forms an effective RF seal.
