With a dedicated force measurement design team, production technicians, and a specially built calibration laboratory, we are equipped to take your component from concept to reality in the shortest possible time.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you offer temperature compensation?

A: Yes, all of our strain gauge installations feature temperature compensation for offset and gain changes with temperature as standard.

Q: Can you strain gauge my existing damper eyes?

A: In most cases we can strain gauge your existing damper eye. If you supply a drawing for the eye to us we can review and offer advice on the most suitable installation.

Q: What amplifier options do you provide?

A: We offer various amplifier options from a simple 0-5V amplifier that is housed within an aluminium housing that connects in-line to the sensor loom to our Microprocessor based Intelligent amplifier.

Q: Do you have off the shelf products?

A: Yes, we offer a range of standard off the shelf products such as those suitable for NASCAR suspension applications to other one make chassis manufacturers such as IndyCar.

Q: Can you design a custom force measurement product for my application?

A: Yes, this is where we pride ourselves with our Loadcell experience. From a simple design brief we can design and manufacture custom products for your exact requirements.

  • Track Cycling Instrumented Aero Cranks

    After previous success with supplying instrumented cranks in the run up to London 2012, bf1systems were approached to co-develop a set of highly aerodynamic, instrumented cranks for use in the velodrome for the 2016 Olympic Games.

  • Suspension

    bf1systems provides a wide range of suspension force measurement components, including damper loadcells, pushrod and pullrod loadcells, spring top hat loadcells, tie rod loadcells and bump stop loadcells.

  • Amplifiers

    bf1systems are now able to offer three different strain gauge amplifiers (in-line, intelligent and dual gain), meaning there is one to suit every application.

  • Gearshift Loadcells

    The bf1systems gear lever uses load cell technology for gear change strategy.

  • Wind Tunnels

    The correlation between data acquired in the wind tunnel and that obtained from on track running is critical, so ensuring you have the highest quality of measurement components in the wind tunnel is critical.

  • Sport Science Measurement Systems

    bf1systems have applied their knowledge from over 20 years in the motorsport industry to the sports world, starting in 2009 with their Factor 001 bicycle which featured a host of revolutionary electronics for the cycling industry, and now spreading out into disciplines including paralympics and a range of cycling disciplines.

  • Corner Scale

    Accurate, linear and repeatable four post rig data for single seater, saloon and GT applications.

  • Torque Measurement

    The bf1systems internal torque measurement system is an unobtrusive, two channel high precision system, capable of monitoring the torque applied to the drive, input or prop shafts of competition vehicles, to a very high accuracy and in aggressive environments.
