IEC60236-1 Handle Lifting and Carrying Strength Test Equipment
The handle strength test apparatus is designed to meet the test requirement of to IEC60236-1-2018 clause 8.8, GB9706.1-2007 clause 21. It’s applied to test the strength of handle for lifting or carrying the equipment, like of portable medical equipment.
A weight exerts a force of 3 times or 2 times the weight of the equipment shall be uniformly applied over a 75mm width at the centre of the handle, without clamping. The additional weight shall be started at zero and gradually increased so that the test value is attained in 5s to 10s and maintained for 60s. After the test, the handle shall not break, crack, or detach from the equipment.
Button + meter
Infinitely adjustable speed motor
Range of tension
One handle or multiple handles
The instantaneous force value of the sample can be displayed during the test
The maximum force value of the sample can be displayed after complete the test
the upper and lower limits of the stroke will automatically stop and the protection force value has the function of automatic zero reset, no need to adjust the zero after changing the fixture
Weight applied as per IEC60236-1: 2018 clause 8.8
a. for MS1 equipment with two or more handles, a weight that exerts a force of three times the weight of the equipment;
b. for MS2 equipment, a weight that exerts a force of three times the weight of the equipment;
c. for MS3 equipment with a mass 50 kg or less, a weight that exerts a force of two times the weight of the equipment or 75 kg, whichever is greater
d. for MS3 equipment with a mass greater than 50 kg, a weight that exerts a force of the
weight of the equipment or 100 kg, whichever is greater.
