Model IT504 Impact Tester for Plastics
Model IT504 includes the Model 104 Digital Display/Controller for a high degree of flexibility, accuracy & test data resolution to meet all testing needs. Pick and choose optional fixtures and weights to meet the testing requirements of your material.
This system does not require a separate PC and software in
order to operate. However, a data acquisition/machine control software package
is available as an option.
- Conforms to ASTM Methods D256 and D6110; ISO
Standards 179 & 180.
- Aerodynamically designed compound pendulum of the
IT504 provides maximum rigidity in the direction of impact and virtually
eliminates windage losses. Pendulum capacity is easily changed by adding on
any one of seven optional weight sets.
- User-programmable Model 104 Display/Controller has
electroluminescent display of specimen dimensions, energy and force units in
SI, old Metric or English system units.
- Automatic report generation with optical serial
- "Low-Blow" feature provides a convenient and
reliable method for releasing the pendulum from lower than "standard" drop
heights for testing at lower impact velocities and energy levels.
- Accessories available for purchase include fixtures
for Izod & Charpy testing, additional weights to increase the energy capacity
of the pendulum, Model PI-T Cold Temperature Chamber or Model PI-T-H Hot/Cold
Temperature Chamber, printer, WindowsTM based data acquisition/machine control
software package. An instrumented impact system is also available for research
& development applications.
