Measures the actual user input energy on a door system in order to latch.
EZEnergy is a compact device that can be easily installed on any closure and it will allow the user to capture how much energy he had to apply to the door to bring it to a close. The advantage of measuring the energy is that it will also include the effect of check and hinge while classic speed devices only capture the influence of seal and latch.
Energy / Force / Speed
The unit integrates three distinct characteristics. First it will allow to capture the required energy the user has to provide to bring the door from an open position to a close. Secondly the unit can also be configured to capture the static closing force. Finally, the unit is also capable of recording the closing speed in the scope of the maximum speed during the trajectory. Each method allows a best evaluation or more detailed analysis of the closure.
EZEnergy has an integrated feature where the units reports to the user the lowest energy at which the door latched as well as the highest energy where the door did not latch. The difference can be programmed to be a particular value, in order to guarantee the completion of the iterative testing.
