The Nova 170 Magnet Wire Elongation Tester performs the elongation test according to NEMA, or IEC and JIS specifications. The tester can be calibrated traceable to NIST. The elongation tester elongates a specimen of annealed magnet wire with a test length of 10 inches (25.4 cm) to a predetermined % elongation up to 60% or to failure. The maximum elongation is 60 %. A laser engraved scale is used to indicate the percent elongation.
The tester can test annealed wire sizes 12 AWG – 0.25” diameter and rectangular wire up to 0.4”x0.7” or 0.28 sq. inches (2 mm – 6 mm dia. and rectangular wire up to 10 mm x 18 mm or 180 sq. mm). The maximum test load is 11,000 lbf (50 KN).
Ball screw and linear guide assembly together with reliable electronics in a totally enclosed chassis provide a sturdy and reliable test platform.
