Go Direct® Centripetal Force Apparatus (GDX-CFA)
– Primary Test: Check the unit to ensure the shaft is free spinning. Confirm that the beam is securely attached to the shaft and that the thumb screw is secured so the block does not slip.
– Secondary Test: Attach the force sensor to the beam. Turn on your sensor and connect to Graphical Analysis 4 on your device. Verify that you can collect data.
