Settings[edit]


Force Plate properties in Motive. (AMTI)

Name[edit]

Name of the selected force plate.

Triggered Sync[edit]

Select whether the force plate is synchronized through a recording trigger. This must be set to Device when force plates are synchronized through recording trigger signal from the eSync. This must be set to None when synchronizing through a clock signal.

Reference Clock Sync[edit]

When set to true, the force plate system synchronizes by reference to an external clock signal. This must be enabled for the reference clock sync. When two systems syncs using the recording trigger, this must be turned off.

Multiple[edit]

Multiplier applied to the camera system frame rate. The resulting rate decides the sampling rate of the force plates.

Rate[edit]

Resulting acquisition rate of the force plates

Order[edit]

Assigned number of the force plates.

SyncMode[edit]

Shows which sync mode (clock sync or triggered sync) of the selected force plate(s).

Details[edit]


Name[edit]

Force plate name

Model[edit]

Model number of the force plate

Serial[edit]

Force plate serial number.

Channels[edit]

Number of active channels available in the selected device. For force plates, this defaults to 6 with channels responsible for measuring 3-dimensional force and moment data.

State[edit]

Indicates the state that the force plate is in.

Scale[edit]

Size scale of the resultant force vector shown in the 3D viewport.

Length[edit]

Length of the force plate.

Width[edit]

Width of the force plate.

ElectricalOriginOffset[edit]

Manufacturer defined electrical-to-mechanical offset values.

Corners[edit]

Lists out positions of the four force plate corners. Positions are measured with respect to the global coordinate system, and this is calibrated when you Set Position using the CS-400 calibration square.
