Advanced Force & Torque Indicator (AFTI)

A versatile force and torque display unit, with interchangeable 'smart' sensors, that provides high accuracy and flexibility.

The AFTI can be used as a handheld device for mobile applications or it can be used as the measurement device for integration into your own test rig.


The Advanced Force and Torque Indicator (AFTI) is a high-specification display unit, for use with Mecmesin's 'Smart' force and torque sensors.

Ideal for use in production, quality-control or in research and development,  its dual-function keypad makes operation simple. With its rugged housing being machined from lightweight aluminium, the ergonomic AFTI is powered through a mains adaptor (supplied) or standard rechargeable AAA batteries.

Interchangeable 'Smart' sensors are plug and play. Simply connect a force or torque sensor to the AFTI and its calibration data will be automatically recognised without any operator input required.


Tension, compression and torque measurement with peak-hold function and full unit conversion of the displayed value.

Operating at an internal sampling rate of 5,000 Hz measurements can be displayed in:


  • N.m, mN.m, cN.m, daN.m
  •, lbf.ft,


  • N, mN, cN, daN, kN
  • kgf, gf
  • lbf, ozf


Clear 4 ½ digit backlit display featuring an overload warning with trend bar to alert operators. Audible and visual pass/ fail indicators clearly signal when displayed readings lie within tolerance.

An onboard memory to store 500 peak readings.


RS232, digimatic and analogue data output are all standard to allow easy data transfer to PCs, printers and dataloggers. Choose from a selection of interface cables to connect to your device.
