All About the Chatillon CS Series Testers

The CS Series is made by the Sensors, Calibration, & Test division of Ametek. These products represent Ametek’s line of high-quality digital force testing machines that are used for production testing. The CS Series is particularly designed for applications up to 5 kN (1100 lbf), and is used to test a wide range of materials, including electronics, plastic, rubber, packaging, textiles, and medical devices.

One hallmark of the CS Series is its user-friendly, intuitive method for a variety of testing, ranging from flexural testing to tensile testing, compression testing, shear testing, and advanced multi-stage testing. The goal was to create a platform with high ease-of-use. Thus, no knowledge of programming is required, and neither is proprietary software.

Accuracy for the CS Series is better than 1%. The testers showcased in the segment come in two sizes and capacities: the CS225 goes up to 1 kN/225 lbf and the CS1100 goes up to 5 kN/1100 lbf.

Additional benefits include the 1000hz data sampling, a large working area, ergonomic design, automatic sensor recognition, and a sophisticated load measurement system.
