New Generation Fully-automatic In-line Solenoid Tester


SST-162 Solenoid TesterThe SST-162 is new generation solenoid tester with advanced measuring capabilities. It is designed as a fully automatic in-line solenoid tester for production testing for all types of solenoids. With a Fast measuring time between 8 to 10 seconds, it precisely measures and checks all critical solenoid parameters to detect weak or imbalanced coils, defective springs, assembly errors, and mechanical restrictions.
