The TSMFM500-DC is an advanced motorized test stand offering all the mechanical specifications of the TSFM500. The test stand is designed for compression and tension testing of springs, packaging metals, fabrics, and other items requiring up to 500 lbF of force. Generous clearance and throat depth accomodate a broad range of sample shapes and sizes. The TSFM 500-DC's durable and rigid column features include a manual fine adjustment knob and a stepper motor that prevents the speed variation with load, making testing precise and repeatable.
The TSFM500-DC's controller adds a significant amount of sophistication, including an extended speed range, PC control capability, programmable cycling, auto return, overload protection, and other features.

An RS-232 port is provided to interface with a PC. The test stand accepts a number of commands pertaining to test stand motion and force gauge functions*. The following additional items are required for PC control:
Series BG force gauge (more info) or Series CG force gauge (more info)
09-1056 serial cable (see Optional Equipment)
09-1143 multi-function cable (see Optional Equipment)
Protects a force gauge against overload (requires a Series BG or CG force gauge and 09-1143 multi-function cable). The user programs the desired percentage of full scale of the gauge. Adjustable analog output voltage setting allows the test stand to interface with virtually any force gauge with analog output.
The crosshead moves to a limit switch or force set point (requires a Series BG or CG force gauge), stops, and reverses direction at maximum speed to the other limit switch or set point.
Cycling / Dwell Time
The crosshead moves up and down between limit switches or force set points (requires a Series BG or CG force gauge). Configurable up to 99,999 cycles. Dwell time allows the operator to program the amount of time, up to 9,999.9 seconds, in 0.1 second intervals, for which the crosshead pauses at limits.
Programmable UP / DOWN Button Functions
UP and DOWN button operation can be configured in three user-configurable modes: Maintained: a short push produces continuous motion until STOP is pressed, Momentary: crosshead moves only while the button is pressed, and Auto: short push produces maintained motion, while holding down the button will produce momentary motion.
Independent Up and Down Speeds
Programmable independent speeds for up and down directions
Selectable speed units of measurement (in/min & mm/min)
Prevents unauthorized changes to test parameters
* Contains no integrated travel measurement. Travel information available only through the external TSF001 digital travel display, requiring an additional serial port on the PC. For an integrated solution with full PC control, including travel distance, see test stand model ESM301.
A wide range of force gauges and gripping fixtures
Digital travel display
6" [152 mm] travel, 0.0005" [0.01 mm] resolution, SPC output for automated data collection. For output of travel data to a PC, the following items are required: 09-1066 cable and MRS100A communication adapter.
Limit switch kit
Set of upper and lower adjustable solid state limit switches. Repeatable to within 0.001" [0.03 mm].
Multi-function cable, gauge to controller
Connects a Series BG or CG force gauge to the controller. This single cable is used to transmit set points, overload signals, and force data.
Serial cable, controller to PC
Bi-directional communication with a PC for computer control. Also sends force data from the controller to a PC.
RS-232 to USB adapter
Converts RS-232 to USB output. Includes USB cable and installation CD.
Serial cable, gauge to PC
Connects a Series BG or CG force gauge with a PC. Bypasses the controller.
Column can be extended to custom lengths (see Ordering Information).
