SST 160G2 500px

The SST-160G2 is a fully automatic End-of-Line production tester for all types of solenoids.  Flexible connectivity allow the SST-160G2 to be also used in a development or laboratory environment.  Designed to measure and check all critical solenoid parameters in order to detect weak or imbalanced coils, defective springs, assembly errors, and mechanical restrictions.  The SST-160G2 provides excellent diagnostic capabilities, superb measurement accuracy, testing routine configurability and comprehensive reporting including force / position curves.  The tester is available in “Standard” and “Heavy Duty” versions.
