Stiffness Tester - Model 150-E

The TABER® V-5 Stiffness Tester - Model 150-B or 150-E is used to evaluate stiffness and resiliency properties of materials up to 10,000 Taber Stiffness Units. This precision instrument provides accurate test measurement to ±1.0% for specimens 0.004" to 0.219" thickness. Materials include paper products, cardboard, plastics, metals, textiles, rubber, wire, tubing, felts and other sheet materials.

Stiffness Tester - Model 150-E (115/230V, 50/60Hz) - Stiffness Tester Model 150-E features an on-board computer that automatically calculates and records stiffness testing data. Stiffness readings are automatically converted to the appropriate user-selected stiffness range, eliminating the need to manually multiply results by a scaling factor. This instrument also calculates average, standard deviation, and high/low readings. Using the 16 button keypad, operators have the ability to select the direction, deflection and number of deflection cycles. The instrument can also be operated in manual mode, similar to Model 150-B.

With the accessory ports, data generated with the Model 150-E Stiffness Tester can be either printed or downloaded to a PC. Plus, up to 1,000 readings can be stored in non-volatile memory. In addition to the internal real-time clock and calendar, stored readings can be identified with an optional user-defined label. To download data, an optional RS232 Serial to USB Adaptor Cable is recommended.
