The CHATILLON® LTCM-500 digital test stand is an economical, motorized test stand ideal for production environments, research & development laboratories and quality functions. The Chatillon LTCM-500 test stand may be used for tensile, compression, peel, and flexural testing when combined with a Chatillon DF Series force gauge. A large working area and 5-inch (130mm) throat is perfect for large sample testing. The platform features pre-drilled holes for custom fixturing or for use with Chatillon fixtures. The crosshead travel is selectable in either inches per minute or millimeters per minute. The speed range is 0.2 to 20 inches/min (5 to 500 mm/min). A dial is used to set the speed requirement and a digital display indicates the speed selected to 0.1 resolution. Crosshead travel is 29 inches 750mm). An Up and Down switch is used to control crosshead travel direction. A simple switch setting can be used to reverse crosshead speed direction at maximum speed at the completion of a test. An emergency stop is located on the console for easy access. Mechanical limits may be set to stop crosshead travel at a specified position. Rulers are provided on the front face and crosshead face of the column for accurate placement and for measuring extension. Positive braking ensures a precise stop.

Easy Operation

  • On/Off Switch - The LTCM-500 features a switchable power supply that can be adjusted for 115Vac or 230Vac source power. The tester’s On/Off switch is located conveniently on the top of the console.
  • Emergency Stop Switch - The Emergency Stop Switch is located on the top of the console, away from the crosshead or any moving parts. Depress the emergency switch to immediately stop the crosshead travel.
  • LED Display - The high resolution, LCD segment display indicates travel speed, when a Load Limit has been achieved and diagnostic codes.
  • Units of Measure Status Indicators - The LTCM-500 can indicate speed in inches per minute or mm per minute. A status indicator shows the speed unit associated with the displayed speed rate.
  • Simple and Accurate Speed Control - The LTCM-500 console controls are intuitive and easy to use. Users can specify speed in either inches per minute or millimeters per minute. The speed control knob is used to adjust speed from 0.2 to 20.0 in/min or 0.5 to 500 mm/min. Speed accuracy is better than 3%. The Up and Down key is used to control crosshead direction.
  • Independent Return Speed - A separate return speed switch can be positioned so that the crosshead returns to zero at maximum speed or at the speed indicated by the display.
  • Adjustable Deflection Limits - Deflection limit switches are supplied on the front of the column. The column contains increments in inches and millimeters for positioning the limit switches and for measuring sample defl ection. Position and “lock-in” a High and Low defl ection limit to protect your gauge from overload conditions or for ending your
    test at a distance traveled. The crosshead travels up to 29-inches (750mm).
  • Load Limits - When used with a Chatillon DF Series force gauge, the LTCM-500 can make use of the force gauge’s limit outputs. When the force gauge measures a load limit (high or low), the gauge will send a command to the LTCM-500 that causes the tester’s crosshead to stop traveling. This permits automated testing using load limits and helps prevent load sensor overload conditions. The display will indicate a Load Limit condition.

Excellent Performance

Chatillon LTCM-500 Motorized Digital Test StandProduction or Laboratory Environment - The LTCM-500’s rugged construction and simple operation make it ideal for production environments, laboratory applications or for R&D applications. Combine with a Chatillon DFS Series force gauge and you have a force
measurement system with a load accuracy of better than 0.1% full scale. The tester is ideal for tensile, compression, peel, shear, and flexural testing when used with the appropriate grips/fixtures.

Long Crosshead Travel - The crosshead travel distance is 29 inches (750mm), ideal for testing large samples or samples with high elastic properties.

Large Working Area - The LTCM-500 features are large working area capable of securing samples up to 10-inches in diameter. The crosshead throat is greater than 5-inches

Flexible Fixturing - The crosshead has been optimized for use with Chatillon DF Series digital
forces gauges. The DFE and DFS Series mount directly to the crosshead without special adapters. The standard T-Slot base comes with a universal
mounting block with #10-32, 1/4-28, 5/16-18 and M12 x 1.75 threads. The universal mounting block is indexed to ensure perfect center alignment.

Mechanical Splinter Screen - The LTCM-500 may be equipped with an optional splinter screen. The splinter screen mounts easily to the LTCM-500 column and base assembly. A hinged door ensures quick and easy access to your sample. The splinter shield is made of clear Lexan.

Chatillon LTCM-500 Motorized Digital Test Stand Flexible Mounting Options
The LTCM-500 features a standard T-slot base that
provides you with a variety of options for securing
your sample during a test. A special mounting block
contains different thread sizes to accommodate a
wide assortment of fi xtures, grips and accessories.
The mounting block may be positioned within the
T-Slot base to ensure proper sample alignment.
Chatillon LTCM-500 Motorized Digital Test Stand Simple Mounting Block
Remote-type load sensors, such as the Chatillon
SLC Load Sensor, are easily affi xed to the LTCM-
500 crosshead with an optional mounting block.
The mounting block has multiple thread patterns
that fi t 10-32F, 1/4-28F, 1/2-20F sensors.
Chatillon LTCM-500 Motorized Digital Test Stand Footswitch Controller
The LTCM-500 may be used with our optional
footswitch controller. The controller plugs directly
into the LTCM-500 and allows the user to control
crosshead travel with a simple foot pedal. The
footswitch is ideal for repetitive testing and provides
