Basic Model (BA)
Basic Models have top and bottom travel limits that can be adjusted for a precise range of movement. Set the travel limits, flip the direction switch right or left to move the crosshead to the right or left travel limit at the selected speed. The speed is set by a Speed Adjust knob. Quick Return and Emergency Stop features are also included.
Auto Cycle Model (AC):
Auto cycle models have right and left travel limits that can be adjusted for a precise range of movement. Speed Adjust, Quick Return and Emergency Stop features are also included. These stands have three function modes.
Manual Mode:
While the Direction switch is held right, the head moves right. Holding the switch left moves the cross head left. When the switch is released the head stops. This mode is ideal for positioning.
Single Cycle Mode:
When the Direction switch is pushed right, the cross head moves right at the desired speed, and when it reaches the right travel limit, it automatically goes back and stops at the left travel limit, completing one cycle. Pushing the switch left runs the cycle in reverse.
Auto Cycle Mode:
This mode is similar to Single Cycle mode, except that the cross head travels right and left repeating the cycle until either the Power or Emergency switches are depressed. This mode is ideal for applications such as fatigue testing.
