Instron’s ElectroPuls E10000 and E10000 linear-torsion all-electric dynamic test instruments are suitable for a wide range of testing requirements. Using linear motor technology, the ElectroPuls systems are capable of running slow-speed static tests through to high-frequency dynamic fatigue tests at more than 100 Hz. The test instruments enable a myriad of mechanical tests to be conducted. The systems do not use oil or a high-pressure power supply, are air-cooled, and only require a single-phase electrical supply. Providing a single testing platform, both models are capable of up to 10,000 N (2250 lbf), and the E10000 linear-torsion features a combined linear-torsion actuator for biaxial tests of materials and components. These high-accuracy instruments incorporate many user-oriented features such as a patented stiffness tuning wizard to ensure achievement of critical loads, a T-slot table for flexible test setups, and electrically operated crosshead lifts.
