Used by ergonomists and engineers worldwide, HOGGAN Scientific, LLC Announces the ergoPAK Portable Analysis Kit (measures force, angle, acceleration) with new software update, improves functionality and provides additional feedback information of real time data collection for ergonomic and engineering applications for real world job and product testing.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) November 20, 2013ergoPAK Portable Analysis Kit by Hoggan Scientific, LLC, is the essential tool kit for ergonomists, engineers and research professionals to measure, quantify and validate human and product performance and the workplace. The standard ergoPAK Kit provides the tools to measure force, angle, and acceleration in virtually any combination, to collect and analyze data under real job conditions. ergoPAK is portable, flexible and unobtrusive, all essential requirements for accurate “real world” testing applications. The newly released FDC software update provides additional testing options and output information previously not available.
The ergoPAK Portable Analysis Kit includes a 50 lb. load cell for small force compression and pinch tests, 500 lb. load cell for medium to heavy testing, two inclinometers for angle or range of motion testing, and 2 accelerometers for Gs measurement testing. ergoPAK is Wireless with RF (radio frequency), which allows free motion & data capture within a 100 foot radius. The data collection software included with the system records and saves the data to a .csv file to view later and perform analysis of the saved tests. Additional sensors can be purchased and added to expand the standard kit to create additional analysis applications. Optional sensors – FSR’s or thin film force sensors and torque sensor are also available.
“Think of ergoPAK as a comprehensive tool kit,” says Hoggan Sales Director, Cynthia McKenna. “The measurement sensors all connect to the same wireless device hub. With ergoPAK utilizing “plug and play” functionality, the sensors can be used individually or together with other sensors in virtually any combination with real time data capture. The ergoPAK Portable Analysis Tool Kit and optional sensors offer an efficient and cost effective solution to increase human, product and process efficiency,” McKenna adds.
The newly released version FDC data collection software update used with ergoPAK data acquisition system and sensors provides more versatility, functionality and feedback information than ever before. New enhancements to the FDC software include: Recall/open saved tests in software, large numerical readout display option in addition to real time graphical data display, audible prompts for loss of wireless signal, configurable start and stop conditions, and additional statistical calculation output information.
Major companies worldwide in the automotive, aerospace and defense, consumer products, food processing, warehousing, and other industrial manufacturing industries, as well as universities and labs utilize ergoPAK’s technology for ergonomics, research, product development, engineering, consulting, and human movement evaluation testing. FDC Software in conjunction with ergoPAK Portable Analysis Kit assessment measurement equipment provides objective, accurate and quantifiable data to assist in the evaluation, analysis and recommendations for ergonomic assessments, work-place design, risk management solutions, and design and validation of products.
