Servo Creep Systems
Available from Interactive Instruments, Inc.
The Servo Creep Controller is designed as a substitute for dead weight stands, transforming them into a low cost automated load stroke or strain controller system. The controller interfaces with two of our load actuators for continuous loads up 5000 lb. and 10,000 lb.
The actuators can be mounted to our optional aluminum frame stand so you can get your test up and running quick and efficiently. The frame is designed to adapt to your requirements allowing the actuator to be mounted above or below the testing area. The adjustable frame stand can adapt to most autoclaves, ovens or custom chambers, the small 2'X2' footprint allows many test setups in tightly constrained laboratory space.
The Model 5K Servo actuator is capable of controlling tensile loads continuously up to 5000 lbs (temporarily to 7500 lbs) while our Model 10K actuator is capable of continuous loads up to 10,000 lbs. Both actuators operate over a 3.25 inch stroke range and are capable of controlled rates between 1e-300"/min and 75"/min.
The control panel can be controlled manually or remotely in real-time. A built-in waveform generator can be programmed to cycle or ramp the control point for hours, days or even months for unattended testing.
