Figure 6. Schematic overview of manual test bench, which was used to apply load to cable and master cylinder. Load can be applied by turning actuator spindle. Load cell measures actuation force and linear variable differential transfer (LVDT) mea-sures displacement. Adapted from Smit et al. . Fact = force activation cable, mVact = voltage force sensor (unamplified), USB = universal serial bus, Vact = voltage sensor (amplified), VLVDT = voltage displacement sensor, xact = displacement activation cable.
