Oven Plus 30 Bank Shear


Product Overview

Shear Stand

  • Rugged construction, capable of withstanding the abuse of the production environment
  • Two component design allows the switch unit to be separated from the timer control box
  • High temperature, 8' long (2.5m) cable interfaces the two components
  • Designed to use standard, 2" x 3" (50mm x 75mm) format, test panels
  • Capable of holding panels of various thicknesses, up to 1/4" (6mm)
  • Mechanical switches can be calibrated to trip when using weights from 100 to 1,000 grams
  • Adjustable feet allow the user to level the testing plane
  • Panel rack is marked for the standard 178° back tilt, as specified by most shear test methods
  • Adjustable angle panel rack allows the user to easily change the test angle from 178° to 90°
  • Shear stand operating temperature range 20° - 400° F (-6° - 204° C)
  • Shears are designed to be used with weights from 100gr to 1000gr
  • Any weight which is larger than the 1000gr requires the S-EXT(Shear Extension) accessory
  • The largest weight that can be safely used with the shear stand is 3000gr


Timer Box

  • Compact and easy to use
  • Easy-to-read, 0.5" (1 cm) LCD timer display is set to time in increments of 1/10 of a minute
  • Timer box operating temperature range 32° - 150° F (0° - 70° C)
  • Timer box has universal input voltage from 85-265 VAC (50/60 Hz)
  • Optional thermocouple accessory records failure temperature



  • 4 segment programmable controller, capable of performing SAFT ramped temperature testing
  • Maximum oven operating temperature of 500°F (260°C)
  • Temperature control accuracy of oven ± 0.5°F at 410°F (1°C at 210°C)
  • Temperature distribution accuracy of oven ± 1.5°F at 500°F (2.8°C at 260°C)
  • Oven is capable of achieving a temperature rise of 2°F (1°C) per minute (dependent on thermal mass)
  • The switch unit of the 30 Bank Shear fills approximately 50% of the interior volume in the oven
  • Stainless steel interior construction of the oven
  • Forced-air circulation type oven (convection)
  • Vent hole in rear of oven for accessory access
  • Easy-open oven door latch minimizes disruption of testing
  • Over-temperature protection and other safety features designed into oven electronics
  • RS-232 serial interface to controller, includes programming and data-logging software
  • 4,000 watt heating capacity
  • Standard oven input voltage - 208 VAC, 3-Phase, (50/60 Hz)
