Vehicle Test Sensors – Window Pinch Force Systems: Hands Free Pinch Force

Model 10293, Window/Sunroof Pinch Force Sensor Kit, is used to measure the pinch force of automatically closing windows, doors, and sunroof systems under defined spring rates and displacements. The sensor features five interchangeable spring packs, adjustable measurement height, and a hand held peak force display. The user will configure the sensor spring rate by screwing in the spring packs and adjusting the window bracket to the desired window opening. In operation, the sensor is clipped onto the window and the closer actuated. The companion instrument records the peak force developed to verify compliance to the specifications. The sensor was designed to help automakers and OEM’s comply with FMVSS 118 and International standards for
interior fittings.
