Mark-10 TSTM-DC – TSTMH-DC Motorized Torque Test Stand

** SP-2496 and SP-2624 cannot be ordered simultaneously

Note: For full operation out of the box, you will need a torque sensor, indicator, cables (09-1162 and 09-1056 options above), and Grips/Attachments to secure the sample.

The TSTM-DC Advanced Motorized Torque Test Stand offers all the mechanical specifications of the TSTM motorized test stand, including standard 100 lbFin (11.5 Nm) torque capacity, versatile modular design, quick engagement and disengagement of samples, fixture mounting plate, stepper motor design that prevents speed variation with load, and more. A 200 lbFin (22 Nm) capacity upgrade is available as an option.

Additional Options

The TSTM-DC offers expanded capabilities, including full PC control, programmable angle limits, programmable cycling, auto return, password protection, and other features. The TSTM-DC is an advanced motorized torque test stand, designed for a wide variety of applications requiring up to 100 lbFin (11.5 Nm) of torque, including closure torque testing, fastener torque testing and more. A 200 lbFin (22 Nm) capacity upgrade is available as an option. The stand includes 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.

Mark-10 TSTM-DC – TSTMH-DC Motorized Torque Test Stand Features

  • Maximum load:
    Standard: 100 lbFin [11.5 Nm]
    Optional: 200 lbFin [22.0 Nm]
  • Speed range:
    Standard: 0.01 – 15 RPM [0.05 – 90°/s]
    Optional: 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

* Maximum torque decreases proportionately with speed. Examples:
– Maximum torque at 60 RPM = 25 lbFin [2.8 Nm]
– Maximum torque at 30 RPM = 50 lbFin [5.6 Nm]

Controller Features

  • 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
    – 09-1162 multi-function cable
    – 09-1056 serial cable
  • Digital Angle Indication
    Rotational travel is indicated in degrees or revolutions, with RS-232 output of angle data.
  • Programmable Angle Limits
    The TSTM-DC can 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 7i or 5i force/torque indicator and 09-1162 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 7i or 5i 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.
