TSFM500-DC Advanced High Capactiy Motorized Test Stand
The TSFM500-DC Advanced Motorized Force Measurement Test Stand offers all the mechanical specifications of the TSFM motorized test stand, including 500 lb (2200 N) force capacity, generous clearance and throat depth, rugged design, and more, stepper motor design that prevents speed variation with load, and more.
The TSFM500-DC offers expanded capabilities, including PC control, programmable cycling, auto return, and other features.
Loading table with 25 #10-32 UNF holes for fixture mounting
Available in vertical and horizontal orientations.
Supplied with four hooks (small, medium, large, and extra large), 1/2-20F adapter plate, 2" and 3" compression plates, two couplers (#10-32 coupler and 5/16-18), and wrench set.
Controller Features / Specifications
A bi-directional RS-232 port is provided to interface with a PC. For full control from a PC a command set is provided.
The following additional items are required for PC control:
- Series 5 force/torque gauge (more info)
- 09-1056 serial cable
- 09-1143 multi-function cable
Protects a force gauge against overload (requires a Series 5 force gauge and 09-1143 multi-function cable). The user programs the desired percentage of full scale of the gauge. Adjustable analog output voltage setting allows the test stand to interface with virtually any force gauge with analog output.
The crosshead moves to a limit switch or force set point (requires a Series 5 force gauge), stops, and reverses direction at maximum speed to the other limit switch or set point.
Protects the torque sensor against overload (requires a Series 5 force gauge and 09-1143 multi-function cable). The desired percentage of full scale of the sensor can be user-programmed.
Cycling / Dwell Time
The crosshead moves up and down between limit switches or force set points (requires a Series 5 force gauge). Configurable up to 99,999 cycles. Dwell time allows the operator to program the amount of time, up to 9,999.9 seconds, in 0.1 second intervals, for which the crosshead pauses at limits.
Programmable LEFT / RIGHT Button Functions
LEFT and RIGHT button operation can be configured in three user-configurable modes: Maintained: a short push produces continuous motion until STOP is pressed, Momentary: crosshead moves only while the button is pressed, and Auto: short push produces maintained motion, while holding down the button will produce momentary motion.
Independent Left and Right Speeds
Programmable independent speeds for left and right directions
Selectable speed units of measurement (in/min & mm/min)
Prevents unauthorized changes to test parameters.
* Contains no integrated travel measurement. Travel information available only through the external ESMH001 digital travel display, requiring an additional serial port on the PC. For an integrated solution with full PC control, including travel distance, see test stand model ESM301.
