The FT-302 is a high sensitivity dual-range research grade force
transducer designed to measure forces in the 0.005 to 10 gram and 0 to
100 gram ranges. The FT-302 exhibits excellent isometric properties. In
addition, its unique optical technology makes it resistant to drift and
offers intrinsically low noise characteristics. The FT-302’s on-board
amplifiers reduce gain and adjustment requirements on recording
amplifiers to which it may be connected.
The transducer is highly resistant to mechanical damage; its body is
machined from aluminum and mounts to a standard ring stand or, with the
handle removed, clamp mounts. The cable that connects the FT-302 to the
recording amplifier is detachable, allowing for multiple cables to be
configured for the user’s choice of amplifiers. The FT-302 requires a
signal conditioner such as the IA-400D, ETH-256 or ETH-401. The FT-302
also directly connects to the iWorx Recorders without amplification.
