A bi-directional RS-232 port is provided to interface with a PC. For full control from a PC a command set is
The following additional items are required for PC control:
- 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 TSTMH-DC can stop at or cycle between programmable upper and lower angle limits. Programmable in degrees or
Protects the torque sensor against overload (requires a Series 3I/5I force/torque 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/torque 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)
