Advanced Motorized Torque Test Stands Series TSTM-DC

Series TSTM-DC advanced motorized torque test stands are designed for a wide variety of applications, including closure torque testing, fastener torque testing, and more. Two torque capacities are available, 100 lbFin (11.5 Nm) and 200 lbFin (22 Nm).

The stands include a torque loading plate with tapped holes for grip and fixture mounting. Stepper motor design eliminates speed variation with load. A lever-operated slider with travel stops makes engaging and disengaging samples quick and efficient. A modular mechanical design allows the stand to be configured for a variety of applications.

The controller features an integrated angle display and output, programmable angle travel limits, PC control capability, programmable cycling, auto return, overload protection, password protection, and more.

  • Maximum load
    TSTM-DC / TSTMH-DC: 100 lbFin [11.5 Nm]
    TSTM-DC-1 / TSTMH-DC-1: 200 lbFin [22.0 Nm]
  • Speed range
    TSTM-DC / TSTMH-DC: 0.01 - 15 RPM [0.05 - 90°/s]
    TSTM-DC-2 / TSTMH-DC-2: 0.04 - 60 RPM [0.2 - 360°/s] *
  • Speed accuracy
    ±0.2% of setting, ±0% variation with load
  • Digital display of angle
  • Programmable angle limits
  • Rotational travel accuracy: ±0.7° / 0.02 rev.
  • Rotational travel repeatability: 0.1° / 0.01 rev.
  • Rotational travel resolution: 0.1° / 0.01 rev.
  • Throat: 4.10" [104 mm]
  • Manual adjustment: 12° / adjustment knob rev
  • Angle dial with 2° resolution
  • Maximum slider travel: 15.5" [394 mm]
  • Slider travel rate: 1.047" [26.6 mm] / lever rev
  • Universal power supply: 80-250 VAC
  • CE mark
  • Computer Control
    An RS-232 port is provided to interface with a PC. A command set is provided to allow for full control from a PC.
    The following are required with PC control:
    - Model 7i or 5i force/torque indicator (more info)
    - 09-1162 multi-function cable (see below)
    - 09-1056 serial cable (see below)
  • Digital Angle Indication
    Rotational travel is indicated in degrees or revolutions, with RS-232 output of angle data.
  • Programmable Angle Limits
    Stop at or cycle between programmable upper and lower angle limits. Programmable in degrees or revolutions.
  • Overload Protection
    Protects the torque sensor against overload (requires a Model M7I or M5I force/torque indicator and 09-1162 multi-function cable). The user programs the desired percentage of full scale of the sensor.
  • Auto-return
    The torque table rotates to an angle limit or torque set point (requires a Model M7I or M5I force/torque indicator and 09-1162 cable), stops, and reverses direction at full speed to the other angle limit or torque set point.
  • Cycling / Dwell Time
    Same as auto-return, but with the ability to program up to 100,000 cycles. Programmable dwell time for upper and lower limits (set independently) can be set up for up to 10,000 seconds. Independent CW and CCW speeds may be programmed.
  • Programmable Button Functions
    Programmable CW and CCW button functions - momentary motion, maintained motion, or auto.
  • Independent CW and CCW Speeds
    Configurable speeds for CW and CCW directions
  • Selectable speed units of measurement (RPM and °/s)
  • Password protection
    Prevents unauthorized changes to controller settings.
* Maximum torque is 100 lbFin [11.5 Nm] until 15 RPM, then decreases proportionately with speed, as follows:
- Maximum torque at 30 RPM = 50 lbFin [5.6 Nm]
- Maximum torque at 60 RPM = 25 lbFin [2.8 Nm]

  Series R50 universal torque sensors
Mount directly to the test stand. 6 capacities are available, from 10 ozFin to 100 lbFin [7 to 1,150 Ncm].
  Model MR55-200 torque sensor
200 lbFin [22 Nm] capacity. Mounts via optional adapter.
  Force/torque indicators
Displays the torque value measured by the sensor. Select from several models.

Data collection & motion control software
Consider MESUR™gauge for force vs. travel or force vs. time data acquisition, plotting, analysis, and reporting.

  Multi-function cable, gauge to controller
Connects an indicator to the controller. This single cable is used to transmit set points, overload signals, and torque data.
  Serial cable, controller to PC
For communicating with a PC for data output and PC control.
  RS-232 to USB adapter
Converts RS-232 to USB output. Includes USB cable and installation CD.
  Horizontal / wall mounting kit
Pair of mounting legs for adapting the test stand to a bench, instead of the base.
    Column extension
Column can be extended to custom lengths (see Ordering Information).
  Grips and attachments
For a variety of applications.
  Axial compensator
Allows for axial movement in threaded fasteners, bottle caps, and similar torque testing applications.
