Original Press Release:
Electronic Pneumatic Clamp Controls for All Tensile Testers
Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL) has just developed the ESL Pneumatic Clamp Control for the operation of pneumatic tensile tester clamps. Actuated by a double acting foot-switch, both hands remain free for speedy loading and unloading of test specimens. The ESL Pneumatic Clamp Control fits all tensile testers and is ready to plug into a standard 110 VAC outlet. The unit comes complete with a Filter/Suppressor, Air Pressure Gauge, and Pressure Control Valve.
The ESL Pneumatic Clamp Control is easy to operate. The foot-switch has three operating positions: in the lowest, both clamps are open; in the middle, the upper clamp only is closed; in the upper position, both clamps are closed. The operator loads the sample in the upper clamp first and aligns the sample. When
properly loaded and aligned, releasing the foot switch closes the lower clamp. Maximum air pressure is 100 psi.
