The lever operated Force Measurement Test Stand Model TSB100 is an economical solution for quick-action tensile testing and compression testing of up to 100 lbF (500 N) of force. Constructed of rugged components, this test stand is durable enough for the factory floor, yet precise enough for laboratory environments.
Loading lever can be positioned in 30° increments for ease of operation
Mounting holes for bench mounting
Optional adjustable travel stops
Precision ground rack for smooth precision motion
Removable base plate with 25 #10-32 UNF holes for fixture mounting
Low force friction brake
Mark-10 force gauges with data output include a USB cable, which can be connected directly to a PC. If the ESM001 digital travel display option is ordered and connection to a PC is desired, the following connection cables are required:
Travel display (Mitutoyo) <=> 09-1066 cable, Mitutoyo <=> MRS100A converter, Mitutoyo to RS-232 <=> RSU100 converter, RS-232 to USB (optional)
Ordering information for these accessories can be found here.
Digital travel display*
6" [150 mm] travel, 0.0005" [0.01 mm] resolution, SPC output for automated data collection. Requires travel stops kit. For output of travel data to a PC, the following items are required: 09-1066 cable and MRS100A communication adapter. Note: continuous data output rate is limited to 2 Hz.
Horizontal / wall mounting kit
Set of mounting legs that attach to the test stand column in place of the base.
Travel stops kit
Set of upper and lower travel stops
Column can be extended to custom lengths (see Ordering Information)
Eye end adapters Allow for quick grip installation and removal, and prevent grip rotation. Mount to common test frames, load cells, and force gauges
* Because load cell deflection and system deflection are present and not automatically compensated for, this equipment is recommended for applications requiring at least 0.2 in [5 mm] of travel distance.
