Model 1210 Crush Tester

SUPPORT    GET QUOTE

Emerson’s newly-redesigned Model 1210 Crush Tester is a robust, rigid support, single column type compression tester designed to determine the compressive strength of various material samples for many industries. The Model 1210 offers fixed parameter tests to perform standardized TAPPI testing including ECT, PAT, FCT, RCT, CMT, and CFC. The machine includes a high-speed on-board computer with a color, touch-screen, flat panel monitor.

Compressive force is provided by two rigid platens. The bottom platen is driven and the top platen rests on four certified load cells to guarantee the most accurate test results. The Model 1210 quickly and reliably captures test results, stores data and groups it for statistical analysis and allows averaging, standard deviation, histograms, and control charts.

NEW Features & Improvements

  • TOUCH SCREEN: Run your machine via touch buttons on-screen with the new, nearly-flush display.
  • RECESSED CONSOLE: Shielded from glare and recessed for protection, the heavy-duty console is more at home in industrial production environments.
  • WHISPER QUIET: New noise dampening enclosure reduces machine operation noise to near-inaudible levels, perfect for the lab.
  • DOUBLE SHIELDING: Enclosure panels incorporate embedded dual-plane RFI shielding for advanced noise immunity.
  • ENHANCED G-SHOCK CAPABILITY: New electronic layouts with enhanced support, plus increased enclosure mechanical strength, allow this unit to survive greater G-Shock during moving or shipping.
  • INCREASED STAGING AREA: The top of the Model 1210 has been maximized to allow more area for test staging.
  • VIBRATION RESISTANCE: A greatly increased base mass increases external vibration resistance of test mechanisms.
  • CONSOLIDATED ELECTRICAL RACK: The new Model 1210 design allows the electrical rack back panel to swing down, exposing all electrical components for easy troubleshooting and maintenance. The consolidated design allows complete replacement of the electrical rack to be shipped to the end user for fast replacement in the field.
  • EXPANSION SUPPORT: Additional support added for USB Wi-Fi Dual Band Ethernet (purchased separately) and 10/100 Wired Ethernet bulkhead connector (planned future expansion). USB Inkjet Printers are supported up to dotNET4.5 (low resolution printers via basic printer drivers).
  • DESIGN IMPROVEMENTS: Components are updated to take advantage of the latest CNC capabilities and component materials for improved accuracy and machine longevity without cost increases.
  • STREAMLINED MANUFACTURING: New streamlined process improves manufacturing turn-around time.

Features

  • Windows Operating System
  • Color  touch-screen monitor for easy viewing
  • Test-result tabular report lists each test result and the statistical analysis for the group of samples tested in an easy-to-read format
  • Data logging capabilities add test curve output files as CSV, allowing you to see the force vs. deflection curve for each test
  • Graphics and performance enhancements
  • Increased dynamic response allows additional test specimens including glass, fiber, metals, and other extremely brittle samples
  • Sample rate has increased to 5,000 samples per second, giving the machine a higher sensitivity and response
  • Additional user settings to help with setting up printers and installing peripheral programs
  • Data management is easy. Users can create their own specific identification numbers and view data at any time. Stored data can be re-displayed or printed as a table, histogram, or a control chart
  • Platen opening limits are adjustable by user
  • Select specific fixed parameter TAPPI specified tests (ECT, PAT, FCT, RCT, CMT, and CFC), eliminating operator error PLUS User-definable tests: Peak at Fallback, Peak at Deflection, and Force at Deflection
  • When test stops the platen moves up automatically. There are two positioning speeds: fast and slow
  • Scaled output converts measured force values to the appropriate TAPPI report units
  • Automatic Zero
  • RS-232 output data that can be used in a third party software, such as Microsoft Office/Excel
  • Built in software load cell protection and adjustable platen positioning for fixture and machine protection
  • USB pen drive, calibration restoration, and updates can be installed easily and used to back up data
  • Calibration: Force, resolution, and speed are password protected but can be changed easily in the software calibration section of the program which allows on-site calibration service
  • Precise flatness and parallelism is held within .0005”
  • Units available in Empirical or metric
  • Calibration Test Certificate provided per ASTM E 74
  • Operation Manual
