Built for Precision

Force Measurement

Universally calibrated and better than Grade 0.5 EN 7500-1, DIN 51221 ASTM E-4 and AFNOR A03-501. The minimum range varies from 0.4% to 100%. Load cells are automatically identified and electronically protected. Resolution is 1 part in 500000.

Extension Measurement

Complete frame length to the highest resolution of 0.000001 mm (selectable) and precision is +/− 0.01 mm. Relative, absolute and auxiliary modes in inch, mm and percent are available.

Speed Control

Industry-leading low-speed performance with speeds as low as 0.00001 mm/minute. Drive system temperature and current protection are also available

Load Frame

The rigid frame uses a rigid extruded support column and precision ground steel guide rods. Frame stiffness is up to 400 kN/mm with a built-in K factor facility. Re-circulating ball screw with bellows, customer-programmable safety stops, total travel trips and electronic limit trips are available.

Electronics System

Modular electronics system allows quick data transfer to the PC (up to 1000 Hz) through a high-speed Ethernet connection. Comprehensive input options help link a broad range of accessories and extensometers through easy plug-in interface modules

Safety Features

Broad safety features, such as overload/impact detection, programmable extension limits and E-Stop, guarantee the highest levels of operator safety. Fully conforms to global safety directives, such as 2006/42/EU Machinery Directive, 2014/30/EU Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive and 2014/35/EU Low Voltage Directive.

Optional Touchscreen Panel PC

When the machine is coupled with the optional IPC3 industrial-grade Panel PC with touchscreen control, it becomes a powerful independent system without the need for a Laptop or an external PC.

With the help of the latest Windows 10 operating system and running a complete version of winTest software from Testometric, the system enables full control of the test machine and offers storage and access to infinite test methods and results.

The included mounting arm, which fixes to the machine column T-Slots, can be completely adjusted for reach, height and viewing angle, thus enabling users to determine the most ergonomic working position.
