Chatillon TCD500 Series motorized computer controlled test stands features bi-directional RS232 communications that support data exchange and remote control using a personal computer. These testers are supplied standard with the DFS Series digital force gauge. Force and deflection data may be transmitted or requested and used with our NEXYGEN FM Series software for comprehensive force measurement and materials testing analysis.

The Chatillon TCD500 digital test stand features a ball screw drive with dual column alignment for precise linear motion. Dynamic braking provides positive control of the motor. Programming of test speed, high and low deflection setpoints and cycling are performed using the membrane-style keypad. "MIN" and “MAX" speed functions are also provided for easy setup. Two LCD displays indicate speed and deflection values along with status indicators of the programmed functions and units of measurement (inches or millimeters).
