These instruments are developed for measuring voluminous fleece materials and products of paper and plastics according to ISO 9073-2 and EDANA 30.5-99.
The standardized vertical measuring system consists of a digital micrometer with a pressure plate and a reference plate. This is connected to an electronic measuring device that produces a signal as soon as the pressure and reference plate are in a parallel position to each other under the specified pressure. This way the pressure plate practices a measuring pressure of exactly 0,020 kPa onto the test material and the measurement is done.
The unit can be connected to a computer, to support the user in creating and archiving a test report. Through the calculation of the statistical values after every measurement, the customer can decide immediately whether it accepts or rejects the current measurement. With the automatic data transfer into the test report and the following calculation, mistakes are prevented. The software is therefore especially suitable for serial measurements.
