MICROTRONICS: THE FORCE IN
Microtronics Srl was established in 2002 by like-minded
electronic engineers with a vast understanding in the
field of portable instruments. The company headquarters
and manufacturing plant are located in Treviso, in
Microtronics manufacture many different kinds of electronic
instruments for special applications in various fields:
Measuring devices for automatic gates and doors, Electronic
testers for automotive diagnosis, and fiscal meters for the
fuel consumption on industrial machinery.
Every single Microtronics product undergoes rigorous testing of all its functions before leaving the factory, and is covered
by a two-year warranty from the date of purchase.
Diego Biason, a founder of Microtronic Srl
“We got into force testing market within the
first year of establishment, when we started
a collaboration with major manufacturers of
automation for gates and doors.
“Our force measurers comply with EU standards,
this is the reason why we export mainly to EU
countries, but also to other parts of world, in fact
anywhere there is a manufacturer of gates and
doors: China, USA, South Africa, and others.
“In the UK we are presently selling our brand
directly through some local distributors and
through a network of the biggest manufacturers
of automation for gates, that resell our products
to installers via their own distribution chain.
Customers who want technical or commercial
info, can contact us first to be referred to the
“To comply with regulations, all measuring devices and force testers have to be calibrated at least once a year, for this we
collaborate with a UK based force gauge specialist, that can carry out a fast calibration service for all our UK customers”.
The BlueForce Smart: Force Measurer and Tester
The product that represents Microtronics’ core business is the force measurer and tester for automatic gates; the
The BlueForce Smart is the most technological evolution in the field of force
gauges for automatic gates. It is one of the few instruments in the market to be
fully compliant with EU standard EN12445 because the measuring range is 0-
2000N and the embedded display can show all the four parameters required by
Annex “A” of EN12453: Fd (peak of dynamic force), Td (duration of main force
peak), Fe (final force after 5 secs) and also Fs (average of the static force after the
But the unique feature of BlueForce Smart is represented by the possibility to
interface with a smartphone or a tablet, via Bluetooth (for iPhone and iPad) or
via NFC (for android or windows devices). In that way, user can see a picture of
the selected kind of gate (sliding, hinged, and so on) with all points of
measurements required by the EU standard, and also view a diagram illustrating
force vs time of saved tests and the final result (passed or not) of the test!
Moreover, following the introduction of a new Fast Thermal Printer which is both
wireless and rechargeable, it is now possible to print test reports directly at the
test site, without the need for a laptop and a traditional printer.
These technical characteristics make BlueForce Smart the most advanced force
measurer today in the market.
