The experimental unit demonstrates fundamental principles of statics such as the
equilibrium of forces and moments, resolution of forces, the law of levers, and more. The
base element is an upright panel. Feet enable the panel to stand on a laboratory bench. All
parts required for the experiment can be quickly attached to the rails around the edges. The
imprinted line grid and grid-marked lever rods permit precise assembly. The lengths marked
on the grid make it easy to define angles. A wide range of mountings, such as cables, rods,
pulleys, torque disks, pivot bearings and the like, can be easily fixed in place and combined.
Ball bearings integrated into the panel permit low-friction torque experiments. The
versatility of the experimental unit helps students to explore their creativity in developing
their own experiments. Large-format force gauges are particularly well suited to
demonstration purposes. The adjustable transparent dial enables input loads, such as deadweights, to be taken into account.
