The WT3-201M motorized wire crimp pull tester is designed to measure pull-off forces of up to 200 lbF [1 kN] for wire and tube terminations. The tester conforms to numerous UL, ISO, ASTM, SAE, MIL, and other requirements for destructive testing.
The WT3-201M motorized wire crimp pull tester is designed to measure pull-off forces of up to 200 lbF [1 kN] for wire and tube terminations. The tester conforms to numerous UL, ISO, ASTM, SAE, MIL, and other requirements for destructive testing. Non-destructive testing is also possible, such as pulling to a load or maintaining a load for a specified period of time, as per the requirements of UL 486A/B. Programmable pass/fail limits with red and green indicators and audio alerts help identify non-conforming samples.
The tester accommodates wire sizes up to AWG 3 (0.25 in [6.3 mm] OD), or custom sizes via the available machinable blank fixture. Auto-start automatically begins the test when the wire sample has been loaded. When the sample breaks, the tester can auto-reverse, output the peak force, store the peak force, and zero the display automatically, thereby increasing testing throughput. Further testing efficiency is achieved via the available Profiles function, through which multiple test setups may be saved and recalled as required.
On-board data storage and statistical calculations is provided for up to 2,000 readings, with available date and time stamp for each saved data point. Data can be transferred to a PC or other data collector via USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs.
The WT3-201M includes MESUR? Lite data acquisition software. MESUR? Lite tabulates continuous or single point data. One-click export to Excel allows for further data manipulation.

The tester automatically starts when the sample is loaded, and returns to home when the sample breaks. Adjustable terminal fixture accommodates wire diameters up to 0.25 in (6.3 mm)
As the test begins, serrated cams engage the sample. A pinch guard (red tab shown above) automatically rotates into position, for added safety.
Save and recall multiple profiles, for quick and accurate switchover to different test methods
