The FN7178-2 is designed specifically to be mounted in series with a front wheel shock absorber on a vehicle. It measures the force in three directions to study ride characteristics under a wide range of driving conditions.

A mono-directional version suited for rear wheel absorbers is available under reference FN3229 (no datasheet, technical specification available on request).

With many years of experience as a designer and a manufacturer of sensors, Measurement Specialties from TE Connectivity, Inc. often works with customers to design or customize sensors for specific uses and testing environments.
