DS-2000

Product Overview

Machine Details 

  • Rugged construction, capable of withstanding the abuse of the production environment
  • Digital speed control with encoder feedback
  • Selectable speed range from 0.05 to 2 IPM in 0.005 IPM increments (0.15-5 CPM, 0.05 CPM increments)
  • Selectable test lengths from 0.25 to 1.5 inches in 0.25 inch increments (0.5 – 8.5 centimeters, 0.5 centimeter increments)
  • 100 pound load cell is included with the machine
  • Capable of pulling up to 100 pounds (45 kg)
  • Accurate to +/-0.1% of load cell range
  • Operating temperature range: 32°-150° F (0°-70° C)
  • Capable of stand-alone operation with integrated 5.7 inch touch screen display
  • Data can be downloaded to EZ Data software for complete data management via USB connection
  • Universal input voltage from 85-265 VAC(50/60Hz)

 

Data Acquisition System

  • The ChemInstruments electronic data acquisition system is a state-of-the-art microprocessor controlled force measurement package that combines accuracy with ease of use. This system simultaneouslycontrols test motion, reads the force of a test from a load cell, stores that data in its memory and interfaces with EZ-Lab data management software to show the results graphically.
  • Displays the average, high and low measured force results immediately upon completion of a test
  • Export data by USB connection to a local PC with our EZ Data software
  • Displays test values in grams, kilograms, ounces, pounds or Newtons
  • Samples at 400Hz, 8 samples are collected, averaged and stored as a data point. A test will generate a data point every 20ms – For speeds of 0.35 – 2 IPM.
  • Samples at 50Hz, 8 samples are collected, averaged and stored as a data point. A test will generate a data point every 160ms – For speeds of 0.05 – 0.3 IPM

 

EZ Data

  • EZ Data Compatible Remote setup, operational control and enhanced data collection are all possible when coupled with our EZ-Lab data management software. This application requires an external PC. (See more information about the EZ-Data product)

Methods

Some of the more popular test methods that this device is capable of performing:

  • ASTM: D 1002, D 3163, D 3164
  • FINAT: FTM 18

Quickly measure shear resistance by force rather than time and get a clearer understanding of your adhesive's chemistry. Dynamic shear testing offers a faster, more accurate representation of an adhesives ability to resist polymer disentanglement. Using the ChemInstruments Dynamic Shear, you can graph the actual holding power with one simple test instead of running multiple hang tests and plotting their statistical time-to-fail. The time to collect the data and the integrity of that collected data is considerably better using this device as compared to typical shear testing methods. The Dynamic Shear meets the standards specified in ASTM and FINAT test methods. The included EZ Lab software makes data acquisition and data management easier and provides more powerful analysis capabilities.
