Model TSA750 / TSA750H

Manual Test Stand

The lever operated Force Measurement Test Stand Model TSA750 is a perfect solution for quick-action pull testing and compression testing of up to 750 lbF (3.75 kN) of tensile or compressive force. Made of rugged, machined aluminum components, this test stand is durable enough for the factory floor, yet precise enough for laboratory environments. The test stand includes adjustable travel stops and a frictional low force brake. Available in vertical and horizontal orientations.

  • Compatible with all Mark-10 force gauges, accessories and grips
  • Loading lever can be positioned in 30° increments for ease of operation
  • Threaded holes for bench mounting
  • Adjustable travel stops
  • Precision ground rack and pinion mechanism
  • Adjustable wear plates for smooth, precise motion
  • Optional digital travel display
  • Adjustable friction brake modulates the effort required to turn the lever
  • Competitor force gauge mounting kits available
  • Maximum force:
    750 lbF [3.75 kN]
  • Maximum travel, with stops:
    3.75″ [95 mm]
  • Maximum travel, without stops:
    6″ [152 mm]
  • Travel rate:
    3″ [76.2 mm]/lever revolution

Mark-10 force gauges with data output include a USB cable, which can be connected directly to a PC.

If the digital travel display option is ordered and connection to a PC is desired, the following connection cables are required:

Travel display connection sequence:

A wide range of force gauges and gripping fixtures
Digital travel display* (TSA001)
6″ [150 mm] travel, 0.0005″ [0.01 mm] resolution, SPC output for automated data collection. 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 (TSA002)
Pair of mounting legs for adapting the test stand to a bench, instead of the base.
Column extension
Column can be extended to custom lengths (see Ordering Information)
Mounting table kit (TSA003)
Contains a matrix tapped holes for grip and fixture mounting
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.
