Thanks to its ability to read two sensors simultaneously, the Centor Touch Dual is a true test console designed for advanced force testing. It offers all of the functionality of an efficient force gauge and its calculating power enables it to save values from two different sensors simultaneously and perform calculations on each channel.

The main features of the Centor Touch DUAL are:

  • Memory: 2000 values
  • Automatic calculations of the maximum and minimum
  • Lie graphing: Sensor1 vs Sensor2 (or time)
  • Color touch screen
  • Display 3 measurment lines

The advanced features of the Centor Touch DUAL are:

  • Pre-defined calculation: Break force, Speed, Average Force i.e. peeling of friction tests,... (see below for the detailed list)
  • Threshold points with Pass/Fail analysis (visible and beeping alarm)
  • Compatible with all our force and torque SPIP sensors (plug and play technologies)
  • Statistical features
  • Compatible with the USB stick data recorder DATASTICK and BLUETOOTH dongle


  • New! Bluetooth - With the Bluetooth module (sold separately), you can remove the connection cable between the computer and the gauge.
  • USB data recorder - With the USB Datastick II (sold separately), you can now save all your measurements and graph directly to a USB memory without connecting to a computer.
  • RS232 and USB: 2 modes of operation:
    • Continuous : sending data continuously at an adjustable speed up to 100Hz or
    • On demand: data transmission request from a computer to retrieve the device memory or tare.
  • Analog: sending data continuously at 100 Hz with a voltage of +/- 1.25V.
  • TTL: Interfaces your gauge with a PLC - The Centor Touch Dual model can easily be integrated to an industrial assembly line thanks to its programmable TTL 6 outputs and 2 inputs. Industrial robots are controlled by automate using triggers signals which can be generated through the digital ports of the Centor Touch Dual.

Available pre-defined calculations:

  • Break force
  • Average
  • Average in windows time
  • 1st Peak
  • Peak
  • Peak in a windows time
  • Speed
  • Value of Sensor 1 vs Sensor 2  (i.e. Force value at 10mm of travel displacement)
  • Force at time
  • Time to reach force value
  • Force to close a contact (switches, pushbuttons, contact)

Easily swap load cells: thanks to its advanced features, you can swap load cells by symply disconnecting one cell and fitting another. When a new loadcell has been connected, the Centor Touch Dual will automatically recognised it (reading the new cell's range, serial number and calibration status). Available cells: force / Torque / rotational displacement / Linear displacement.

It is the simplest and most complete scalable system for approaching tests in a workshop or laboratory.
