The Nova 915 Dynamic and Static Coefficient of Friction Tester performs the dynamic coefficient of friction (CoF) test according to the NEMA and IEC specification and the static CoF according to the ‘Maximum Static Force’ principle.
Test data such as Average CoF, Minimum CoF, Maximum CoF, and Standard Deviation are displayed on the LCD screen for Dynamic Friction test.
This modular tester has both the dynamic CoF test system and the static CoF test system built into one chassis. The dynamic CoF test system has magnet wire tensioning and wire straightening feature that ensures stable test data. The static CoF test system has incorporated into its design where the wire samples are straightened to maximize accuracy and repeatability of the tests data.
The coefficient of friction value is an indication of the magnet wire insulation lubricity. The lubricity of the insulation affects the spooling and windability of magnet wire into coils and its subsequent assembly into the finished products.
