TSTM-DC Advanced Motorized Vertical Torque Test Stand
The TSTM-DC Advanced Motorized Torque Test Stand offers all the mechanical specifications of the TSTM motorized test stand, including 100 lbin (11.3 Nm) torque capacity, versatile modular design, quick engagement and disengagement of samples, fixture mounting plate, lever-operated slider with travel stops and more.
The TSTM-DC offers expanded capabilities, including full PC control, programmable angle limits, programmable cycling, auto return, and other features.
Images show TSTM-Dc with optional equipment. The TSTM-DC is a test stand only. In order to meausure torque, a torque sensor, display and appropriate test fixtures are needed.
Angle dial with 2° resolution
The TSTM-DC is supplied with a wrench set
No speed variation with load
Digital display of angle
Programmable angle limits
Series-TT03 Digital Torque Meter
Peak memory for clockwise and counter clockwise readings saved and displayed
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:
- Model Series 3I/5I force gauge
- 09-1056 serial cable
- 09-1143 multi-function cable
Digital Angle Indication
Rotational travel is indicated in degrees or revolutions, with RS-232 output of angle data.
Programmable Angle Limits
The TSTM-DC can stop at or cycle between programmable upper and lower angle limits. Programmable in degrees or revolutions.
Protects the torque sensor against overload (requires a Series 3I/5I force gauge and 09-1143 multi-function cable). The desired percentage of full scale of the sensor can be user-programmed.
The torque table rotates to an angle limit or torque set point (requires a Series 3I/5I force gauge and 09-1143 cable), stops, and reverses direction at full speed to the other angle limit or torque set point.
Cycling / Dwell Time
Same as Auto-return, but with the ability to program the number of cycles up to 99,999 cycles. Dwell time allows the operator to program the length of time, up to 9,999.9 seconds, in 0.1 second intervals, for which the torque table pauses between cycles. Independent CW and CCW speeds may be programmed.
Programmable Button Functions
Expands CW and CCW button operation to three user-configurable modes:
1. Maintained (standard): short push produces continuous motion until STOP is pressed
2. Momentary: torque table rotates only while the button is pressed
3. Auto: short push produces maintained motion, while holding the button down will produce momentary motion
Independent CW and CCW Speeds
Configurable speeds for CW and CCW directions.
Selectable speed units of measurement (RPM and °/s)
