Small Brushless Motor Test Stand

Characterize electric motor power consumption 

The accurate strain gauge load cell measures up to 5kgf with ±0.5% tolerance. The thrust stand controls your motor and communicates the measurements to the software via USB.

Simple Installation

All inclusive thrust stand

The hardware is designed for simple installation and to fit most motors. Assemble the thrust stand in a few minutes and you are ready to start the tests!

Comes factory calibrated, but for peace of mind, you can even recalibrate the load cell with your precision calibration weight.
