Apparatus For Verification Of Maximum and Minimum Force
This Tester is designed to meet the exacting requirements of major
international standards such as IEC 60884-1 Fig 18 and Fig 19. It
is used to test whether the maximum force of pulling the plug from
the socket and the minimum force of pulling the single plug pin
from the plug bush is in the range of the standard required. The
clamping system is easy to operate.
The top plate swivels up from a horizontal position to a vertical
orientation and the clamping device can be rotated in the top
plate. These features allow the device to be set up in many
different configurations to meet different standard requirements.
Standard plugs and weights are supplied to perform testing on
sockets rated up to 16A.
Pin gauges and the appropriate weights for testing minimum
withdrawal force are sold separately. The required dimension of the
pin gauge needs to be specified by the customer.
Test plugs made from hardened steel with roughness not exceeding
Top plate pivots from horizontal to vertical.
