MH2-550 Horizontal Motorized Force Measurement Test Stand offers advanced force testing such as digital speed setting, timer control, and cycle counter. The MH2-550 incorporates an easy to read LCD screen onto the base of the test stand. Use the intuitive program dial to set the operating mode, test speed, and test duration time, number of cycles and change other available test settings.

Three Modes of Operation

The MH2-550 motorized test stand includes three modes of operation: Jog, Manual, Cycle Mode. MH2 features unique jog movement control, for precise increment testing. In jog mode, each click of the program dial moves the cross head approximately 0.05mm (see specifications for more details). Manual mode allows the user to control the crosshead using the arrow buttons. In cycle mode, automated cycle tests are easy to setup.  Control start, measuring and return speeds independently.

Force Control

Force controlled non-destructive tests are also easy to setup and program. Connect an Imada ZT Series force gauge to the MH2 test stand to enable two force controlled modes and Conditional Overload Prevention.

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.
