Computer Program and USB Interface to Use Performance Trends' Valve Spring Tester v1.1 Software with Power Tech's Spring Tester, Part Number SPV11C-DM
Our Valve Spring Tester software can also work with Power Tech's Compu-Spring Tester with our DataMite Mini USB interface shown below. Since Power Tech is no longer in business, this logger replaces all Power Tech electronics, making it easy for you to get support in the future. You will continue using the Power Tech load cell and length sensor, but will have to change connectors on these 2 sensors.
Our software offers several enhancements over the Compu-Spring software, including:
The 2 printouts below show 16 tests of the SAME SPRING tested with a Power Tech Spring Tester, first using the standard Power Tech Compu-Spring software, and then using our Valve Spring Tester v1.1 and USB interface. Because the exact same tester was used, the difference in the results is entirely due to the improved accuracy in our software.
|Range in Spring Rate||Range in Seated Force||Range in Open Force||Range in Bind Height|
|Power Tech||8 lbs||2 lbs||5 lbs||.025 inches|
|Performance Trends||3.1 lbs||1.6 lbs||1.4 lbs||.002 inches|
We are not saying that some users may not like the layout or operation of the Power Tech software. Software with less features is typically easier to use. We're just offering our software to those who want more features and improved accuracy.
When you convert your Power Tech spring tester over to our Mini USB Logger, you will continue to use your existing sensors, which will save you cost over switching over to our Performance Trends Valve Spring Tester. to send us an email to check on cost and delivery of converting your Power Tech tester completely over to our electronics and software. You may also want to send in your tester to have us do the conversion and check the calibration.
