The WT3-201M Motorized Wire Crimp Pull Tester is designed to measure pull-off forces of up to 100 kg for wire and tube terminations.
It tests according to UL, ISO, ASTM, SAE, MIL, and other standards for destructive testing.
It can test wire sizes from AWG30 to AWG 3 (0.3 - 6.3 mm), or custom sizes via the available machinable blank fixture.
The WT3-201M can perform Destructive or optionally Non-destructive testing, such as pulling to a load (option WF011) or maintaining a load (option WF012) for a specified period of time, as per the requirements of UL 486A/B.
Auto-start automatically starts the test when the wire sample has been loaded. When the sample breaks, the tester can auto-reverse, output the peak force, store the peak force, and zero the display automatically, thereby increasing testing throughput.
The programmable pass/fail limits with red and green indicators and audio alerts helps to identify non-conforming samples.
Further testing efficiency is achieved via the available Profiles function, through which multiple test setups may be saved and recalled as required.
On-board data storage and statistical calculations is provided for up to 2,000 readings, optional is the date and time stamp (option WF013) for each saved data point.
Data can be transferred to a PC or other data collector via USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs.
The tester is delivered with MESURLite data acquisition software.
(MESURLite software tabulates single point or continuous data, with one-click export to Excel for further data processing.)

The tester automatically starts when the sample is loaded, and returns to home when the sample breaks.
As the test begins, serrated cams engage the sample. A pinch guard (red tab shown above) automatically rotates into position, for added safety.
Save and recall multiple profiles, for quick and accurate switchover to different test methods.
