Model: C0055-M1

The Coefficient of Friction Tester – Standard unit can measure the static COF (peak). This is from a resting position. To measure, it continually moves testing surfaces in a relative motion to give an accurate kinetic COF (dynamic) result.

This model features a stationary sled with a moving plane. It also comes with the option of computer software to record data. Moreover, it can also carry our peel testing.

The Coefficient of Friction Tester – Standard range also has the option of a computer software package. Useful to record data including:

  • Dynamic real-time display
  • Statistical analysis
  • Results averaging
  • Screen print out
  • Data export to Excel
  • Test identification entry
  • Peak force value
  • Static Point
  • Kinetic average
  • Adjustable data collection limits

Other options include:

  • OP1: COF Data Acquisition Software (not available for rent)
  • OP2: 180° Peel Fixture Rod C0055-SP1: Updated COF Software (only if C0055-OP1 has been previously purchased)
  • SP2: IDM Interface Cable
  • SP3: Cutting Template for Sled: 63.5mm x 63.5mm
  • SP4: Cutting Template for Moving Plane
  • SP5: Solid Connecting Rod
  • SP6: COF Sled 200g
  • SP7: Spare Stainless Steel Plane Surface
