The main features of the FS300 CT are listed below:

  • Automatic recognition and calibration of load cells and extensometers, with instant calibration check facility
  • High-resolution auto-ranging load cells with an accuracy better than +/-0.5%, down to 1/1000th of the load cell capacity
  • Small footprint design, delivering economy of floor and bench space
  • 800% overload capability of load cells without damage
  • Completely digital testing system with high accuracy and precision control. Includes automated computer control of test techniques offering ease of operation
  • High-efficiency pre-loaded self-cleaning ballscrews for rapid, quiet testing. Fitted with sealed for life lubricated end bearings
  • Crosshead guidance system giving smooth running and precise alignment
  • Precision crosshead control via digital AC servo drive and brushless servo motor, offering maintenance free operation and 4,000,000 steps per revolution positional control
  • High-speed data collection systems for up to four synchronous channels
  • Six I/O channels for extra devices such as micrometers, extensometers, calipers and balances
  • High-stiffness loading frames with solid specialized steel crossheads and rigid extruded support columns with T-slots for accessory mounting
  • Broad range of contacting and non-contacting extensometers is provided including video and laser models
  • Overload, overtravel and impact protection
  • Telescopic covers offering extra protection for ballscrews against testing debris and dust
  • Extensive range of grips and fixtures for shear, tension, flexural, compression, peel, and product testing
