Starrett FMD Dual Column Force Systems up to 11,250lb L2/L2Plus

Starrett Force Measurement Test Frames – Dual Column. The Starrett FMD Series are dual column, bench-top testing systems that operate with the Starret L2 Force Measure software; S2 Spring Test software; and L2 Plus Force Analysis software. L2 and S2 systems operate using a tablet computer and are ideal for high-volume, repetitive testing
applications. L2 Plus systems operate using an all-in-one computer. The Starrett FMD force measuring test frames are available in three load capacities: 10kN, 30kN and 50kN. They can be used for tensile, compressive, cyclic, flexural, shear, creep and other common force measurement methods. FMD testers feature a granite base with all-metal columns and pre-loaded
ball screws making them inherently stiff.

Two enhancements have been made to all test frames and all Lx software applications. Starrett improved and simplified the Firmware Update process. Just select the new firmware file and the update takes place as before, but we have provided feedback messages to indicate if a problem has occurred and the probable cause. This new firmware updater will apply to FMM, FMS, MMS, FMD and MMD test frames. We have a PINCH LOAD feature to the LOADS option in all Lx software. The PINCH LOAD provides a level of protection for users who are concerned about accidently pinching their hands/fingers during a manual movement of the crosshead using the jog keys or joy stick. PINCH LOAD is an option within the LOADS setting. Users can enter a load value, up to 50N (11lbf, 5kgf). When PINCH LOAD is enabled and the user is controlling the test frame via the jog key or joy stick in a DOWNWARD/COMPRESSION direction manually, the crosshead will decelerate to a full stop as quickly as possible when the PINCH LOAD value is measured. This means that some form of load measurement must be occurring and that load data is being measured by either a DFC gage in test mode, or by the L1 software controlling the FMM test frame. The PINCH LOAD option is located in the DFC force gage (TESTS option) and in L1, L2, S2, L2Plus and L3 software applications.
