Imada High Performance test stand (550 lbf, Stroke 12.2"/310mm) ): instrument description

IMADA MX2-550 Motorized Test Stands (series) offer advanced force testing features such as digital speed control, timer control, and cycle counter. The MX2-550 force measurement test stand incorporates an easy to read LCD screen onto the base. Use the intuitive program dial to set the mode, speed, test duration time, number of cycles and change other available test settings. With numerous customizable test settings, the test stand can be used for a variety of tests including: destructive, non-destructive testing, limit testing to a force value, cycle testing and more.

Force Control Capable

Force controlled non-destructive tests are also easy to setup and program. Connect an Imada ZT Series force gauge to the MX2 test stand to enable two force controlled modes and Conditional Overload Prevention. Force control allows users to program the test stand to move until a certain force value is reached. For more information see the force control tab below.
Unparalleled Utility

The IMADA MX2-550 accepts any of the standard range Imada force gauges. Imada recommends using ZT Series gauges to take advantage of all of the features of the MX2. Optional digital distance meters are available in both standard and high speed variety. Both digital distance meters have PC output capabilities, for more information click here.

AP-002 Adapter Plate is available to mount most other force gauges to IMADA test stands.

Force control operation

Maintain Force Between High/Low Setpoints
Initial cross head speed is controlled by the start speed setting. Force control activates when applied force exceeds the low setpoint (and below the high setpoint) on the ZT series force gauge. The cross head maintains force between the low and high setpoint for the specified hold time,and then returns to the start position.

Increase Force to High Setpoint and Stop
Initial cross head speed is controlled by the start speed setting. When the applied force reaches the low set point of the ZT series force gauge, the test stand engages the measuring speed setting. The gauge stops when the applied force reaches the high set point on the ZT series force gauge. Ideal for non-destructive or creep testing. The cycle is repeated until the counter limit is reached.
