Simple technology isn’t always effective. And advanced technology isn’t always efficient. But what if there was an integrated sensor system that was BOTH simple and advanced? There is – it’s FUTEK’s USB Solutions Kit, a platform that is not only user friendly, but expansive in sensor data retrieval.
Available for over 3,500 FUTEK models, this USB Solutions Kit eliminates the intimidation of data logging, graphing, and calibrating. It replaces the need for amplifiers, filters, and power sources with its easy plug & play system, making it ideal for strain gauge data retention. By replacing the need for additional components, FUTEK’s USB Solutions Kit is an affordable answer to load, force, pressure, and torque measurements.
FUTEK’s USB Solutions Kit has the software capabilities of continuous data logging, live graphing, system calibrating, mathematical computing, and many other configurations that will allow the user to customize data retrieval per application. With 3 models (USB210, USB220, USB230), these USB Kits can be tailored to each users application needs.
Future sensor technology revolves around ease, affordability, and proficiency; so why wait for the future to incorporate these benefits into your current data retention applications.
On February 2nd, FUTEK will be participating in a FREE online tradeshow hosted by GlobalSpec. The Sensors & Switches tradeshow is a showcase for fellow designers and manufacturers to discuss their products.
FUTEK is taking this opportunity to release the latest on the new updates for their revolutionary USB technology. Our team of dedicated electrical engineers will share their new additions to our USB software and hardware from 8:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. PST. So sign up. Then, stop by our booth and chat with us.
Remember, it’s free. It’s informative. It’s revolutionary. And what’s more: FUTEK is holding an application contest, with the grand prize of a complete USB Solutions Kit including extended software. Visit our website for more information and to submit your entry.
We hope to see you on February 2nd!

Applications
Motor Test Stand Application
FUTEK’s TRS705 is a Rotary Shaft-to-Shaft Torque Sensor with built-in Encoders. This example utilizes it in a motor test stand application. The purpose of the TRS705 in this application is to measure the load produced between the brake and the motor. The applied load should result is a smooth braking effect. FUTEK’s TRS705 is constructed with built-in encoders to measure the speed/angle output in this application. So while the torque is displayed on the IPM490, the speed can be read on FUTEK’s IPM480. Therefore, the user can measure both the torque and speed of the motor as the load increases.
