The FSA-K2 features 3 operating modes: Manual mode, Jog mode and Cycle mode. Manual mode allows manual control of the carriage at a set speed. Jog mode allows the user to use the program dial to move the gauge very small increments (depends on model). Cycle mode allows the user to easily setup cycle tests.
Force Control Operation
Force controlled non-destructive tests are also easy to setup and program. The FSA-K2 also has Conditional Overload Prevention. Force control allows users to program the test stand to move until a certain force value is reached. For more information see the force control tab below.
The FSA-K2 Force/Displacement Testers are complete test systems which can be configured for a number of applications requiring both force and displacement measurement. These integrated test systems combine the capabilities of MX2 series test stands with FA sensor and ZTA series gauges. The FSA-K2 series features a high speed distance meter. In conjunction with the force gauge, this tester can output up to 2,000 data per second. With the auto start displacement feature, the gauge will only record displacement after a certain force value has been reached.
