Measurement and evaluation
Before a measurement can be taken, no setup is required. The device is activated by simply pushing the control button. After a startup sequence of a few seconds, KMG-Lite is ready for action. As soon as a force of at least 20 Newton is applied, the integrated data logging and evaluation routine is triggered.
According to EN 12453 a force sample is taken every 5 milliseconds. After 5 seconds the recorded force-time-diagram is automatically evaluated and the result parameter for the peak force Fdyn displayed on the build-in LED-segment-display. By pushing the button the calculated values for the dynamic time duration tdyn and the static force remaining after 5 seconds Fend can be displayed.
The following video clips demonstrate the simplified force test method with the KMG-Lite on a sliding gate and a sectional door:
Documentation of a full EN 12453 test series is quite time consuming and should be done with our KMG-2000-G and the according PC-Software.
A simplified force test with the KMG-Lite however can be documented right after the measurement without any delay. For this purpose special paper pads are included with the KMG-Lite.
The Online-Tool can be customized with company information and logo. Standard test point location can also be saved as default information.
After this one-time initial setup, only system specific information and the actual test results need to be filled in to the forms. By clicking “Create Report” a PDF-protocol with all information is automatically created and can be downloaded, printed or emailed right away.
The tool is 100% free to use and is compatible with desktop PCs, notebooks, smartphones and tablets. The only requirement is a web browser with internet access.
