SST-160G2 Laboratory/Production Testing

The SST-160G2 is a fully automatic end-of-line production testing system for all types of solenoids. Flexible connectivity allows the SST-160G2 to also be used in a development or laboratory environment.

Designed to measure and check all critical solenoid parameters in order to detect weak or imbalanced coils, defective springs, assembly errors, and mechanical restrictions. The SST-160G2 provides excellent diagnostic capabilities, superb measurement accuracy, testing routine configurability, and comprehensive reporting including force/position curves. The SST-160G2 is available in “Standard” and “Heavy Duty” versions.
