A sensor’s performance and accuracy will deteriorate over time leading to inaccurate and unreliable results. For gate impact force testers, this could lead to potential safety concerns to the general public and industry professionals. For the safe use of power operated doors, forces should be measured in accordance with BS EN 12445:2001.
Robert Davies – Applied Measurements’ Production Director – knows “it is crucial to get your gate impact force tester re-calibrated every 12 months to guarantee accurate performance, reliability and traceability”.
We are the only UK approved calibration house able to offer a UK based UKAS traceable calibration service for Microtronics BlueForce and SpeedForce gate impact force testers.
It is vital to have your gate impact force tester calibrated every 12 months to ensure it is working to specification.
What’s more, we are now able to offer the new “Upgrade Smart” with Bluetooth wireless technology and NFC technology giving you instant display of the test results direct to your smartphone, tablet or PC (models with built in USB port). For more details on “Upgrade Smart” please see below.
How quickly can you calibrate it?
We offer 2 service options for annual re-calibration. We can also offer the “SMART” hardware and software upgrade with the annual calibration included.
|Service Type||How Long||Price (ex. VAT)|
|Standard||7 Working Days||£156|
|Express||3 Working Days||£198|
|Upgrade Smart inc. Annual Calibration, inc. NEW Carry Case||14 Working Days||£395|
|Prices inc. return delivery to you (UK mainland only)|
|Please note: During August we are not able to guarantee our usual turn-around times on Gate Force Tester calibrations due to the summer holiday closure of the factory in Italy who authorise each calibration that we undertake.|
What do I need to do now?
Download the Calibration Return Form, fill in and send in with your gate force tester and we will contact you as soon as we have received your unit.
What is “Upgrade Smart”?
“Upgrade Smart” gives you instant display of the test results to view on your smartphone, tablet or PC (models with built-in USB port only).
Thanks to advanced Bluetooth LE 4.1 wireless technology and NFC technology, simply place your smartphone or tablet on the back of your upgraded BlueForce gate impact force tester. From here you can view the measurements, graphs and references of the tests. View the Upgrade Smart video below.
If you prefer to view the results on a PC, wireless connection to the PC is even quicker with the new Plug & Go BLE Bluetooth wireless technology to USB adaptor. The gate impact tests results can be sent directly to the PC through the Plug & Go BLE receiver (USB port required). If you already have an existing version of the Plug & Go we will upgrade you to the new BLE free when you “Upgrade Smart”.
Memory capacity is also increased with Upgrade Smart. Memory capacity is increased by 60% which means an incredible 80 tests can be stored on the instrument!
We can now offer the FTP portable thermal printer if you want an immediate printed report of the test results.
