This tester can accommodate larger springs (up to 6” tall) and test with greater accuracy than our ECT. In addition, this tester is upgradeable with more options like the Micro-Length Adjust with length stops, an RS 232 port or single or double length stops. The tester has a two-line backlit LED display of force and length and has deflection compensation for accurate readings at all times. It has a rugged cast aluminum and steel frame, a precision rack and pinion drive with adjustments for wear, and convenient hand operation to apply force and adjust length. It includes standard length lock and mechanical overload stops to protect the tester from damage.

What is length deflection compensation?
All force/lengh testing devices, regardless of manufacturer, have additional deflection by the load cell and tester frame which occurs as the spring is loaded. If you buy/use a tester without deflection compensation, measurements might include significant length errors.
Spring deflection, also known as spring travel or motion, is the action of a compression spring compressing (being pushed), an extension spring extending (being pulled), or a torsion spring winding (being twisted) when a load is applied or released. This is one characteristic (spring deflection) that is measured by a Larson Systems Spring Tester.
Larson Systems has BUILT-IN Length Deflection Compensation so that the user does not have to calculate and apply length corrections. Most competitors do not have length deflection compensation.
With a Larson Systems product, forget about calculating load cell and frame deflection when testing, we’ve got you covered.
Try our software for “Spring Testing Data at Your Fingertips”. With Larson System’s SDC Software, your spring testing data can be accessed, stored and manipulated as it is generated. Store specifications for different parts, load a set of parameters and clearly see which springs are out of spec using the on-screen graphical representation of the testing results. Save and print results or open the results file in Microsoft Excel. You have complete control of your testing data.

Part Number: 025-0000-0485-00
This kit is more flexible than other thru-rod options and can accommodate larger thru-rods. In addition, springs up to 4″ in diameter can be tested with the over-size platforms.
Includes rods: 1/16″ to 11/16″ x 8″ long, and accompanying plates with matching holes. 4″ Ø plate can double for testing springs with larger diameter.
NOTE: Deflection compensation is calibrated at the center of the platforms. The length error would vary depending on the load and the location of the load. A centered load is always best and will read accurately, to within ± 0.001″ (0.025 mm) of the actual length. A large off-center load near the edge of the extended platform may be off by up to 0.008″ (0.2 mm).

Air Vibration Damping Table
Part Number: 025-0000-0288-00
The Air Vibration Damping Table allows you to make very accurate force measurements in normal industrial environments that have floor or building transmitted vibrations. These vibrations may be induced by industrial equipment, local car, truck or rail traffic and in some cases by people walking by. The Air Vibration Damping Table reduces the magnitude of vibration by 10 to 100 times, making it possible to accurately measure forces at very light loads in environments that would otherwise be impossible. The table should be considered for applications with forces less than 10 lb and is highly recommended for applications with forces less than 2 lb.
