Seat-Belt Locking Device Test

Specification


The customer requested a system to measure the force required to release the locking mechanism of a car seat-belt whilst it is under tension. The test is carried out to ensure the seat-belt can be released easily by a passenger after an accident. The force measuring instruments must be versatile and easy to fit into a customised test rig designed by the customer.


Solution


Two separate force gauges were supplied for integration into a mechanical test rig. The 1000 N Micro-processor Force Gauge was connected to a motor drive assembly which served to pre-tension the seat-belt to a specified limit. A lever-mechanism was attached to the 250 N force gauge and used to mesaure the compression force required to activate the locking device. The peak force was then recorded on the display and noted by the operator.


System


  • 1000 N and 250 N MFG (superseded by the AFG)

The input of development ideas and suggestions were also a key part of the service to this customer.
