Starrett FMS range

Starrett are gaining recognition in the market for their innovative and cost-effective range of force testing and measurement systems. The range includes both entry level and advanced force measurement systems.


Starrett FMS L2 systems operate using a Windows®-based tablet PC. Load, distance and time results are displayed in a large format for easy interpretation. Graphical representation and data tables display results with tolerance and statistical calculations. Standard reports are included, or export data for use with other applications.

Additional capabilities are offered with L2 Plus systems which are optimized for quality and engineering personnel. Test setup is intuitive, efficient and non-compromising. L2 Plus measurements and analysis create high resolution graphs based on load, distance, height and time, and then measure any point or segment on your graph using a set of analysis tools.

Load Cells

Starrett offers a full range of precision load cell sensors including economy, S-beam and premium types.

Starrett load cells are compliant with IEEE 1451.4 and meet or exceed ISO 7500-1 standards. Measurement accuracies of ±0.5% of reading down to 1/100 of sensor capacity may be achieved.

Fixturing systems

Clamping systems for Starrett FMS systems include both mechanical and pneumatic types.

An extensive array of fixture accessories such as clevis pins, vise jaws, plattens and special fixtures for a range of industry applications are also available.
