NSN: 6635-01-581-9996

The MPT-250C Motorized Wire Crimp Pull Tester is ideal when a “constant rate of pull” or “force hold” test is desired. The unit has a range of 2.5 lbf to 250 lbf and a full color LCD touchscreen interface. Includes data capture capability for exporting test data to a PC via USB or RS-232. The MPT-250C can test crimp strength on terminations up to size 10 AWG Mil-Spec, commercial, and automotive applications. ** (Reference AS7928 and UL486 Respectively).

The portable design (23.64 pounds, 13.3" Wide x 6" High x 11” Deep) and the rugged construction (machined aluminum and steel) contribute to the versatility and reliability of the MPT-250C Pull Tester. The MPT-250C has a large, easy to use full color LCD display that features a touchscreen menu, designed for fast and efficient use, allowing the user easy access to pull tester operations and setup. The ability to record pull test event data enables the user to monitor your quality standards or even help solve quality issues, thus saving the user time and money.

A variety of options, including standard and custom grips for all types of wire terminations are available on this tester.
