3. Use and operation

3.1 Operation and instructions in use

3.1.1 Measurement interface


a. The real-time measurement interface mainly displays the current real-time displacement and force values. During the measurement process, the test point data is recorded, and the current spring number and the number of repetitions are also displayed.

b. In the real-time measurement interface, you can switch the spring type, measurement mode, number of measurement segments and units; after switching, the system will save the corresponding settings.

c. Type of spring: compression spring can only be set to compression, and tension spring can only be set to tension.

d. Measurement mode: it is divided into load-length and long-load. The difference between these two modes is that the reference is different. Long-load records the spring position according to the corresponding force value; load-length records the spring according to the corresponding position Force value.

e. Number of measuring segments: test the corresponding number of spring test points according to the set number of measuring segments, one segment is to find the force value or position of the first test point.

Real-time spring measurement, depending on the type, and the selected displacement (relative and absolute) mode. The setting value of its running measurement will also be different.

Take the compression spring as an example, in the load-long mode, select the displacement relative mode, then the reference displacement of segment 1 to segment 5 needs to be increased, otherwise it will not work properly. However, if the absolute displacement mode is selected, the base displacement of segment 1 to segment 5 needs to be decreased, otherwise it will not work properly.

At the same time, the final position of the measurement block cannot exceed the logical limit position of the measurement block, otherwise it will not work properly.

3.1.2 System settings

System settings include spring parameter settings, operating parameters, time settings, and factory reset.

3.1.3 Spring parameter setting


a. Test number: The test number can be set up to 32. After pressing \"Add \", the test number increases by one group. Enter the spring parameters to be tested and press \"Save \". As shown below:


b. Number of repetitions: The maximum number of repetitions can be set to 99. After pressing \"Add \", the test number increases by one group. Press \"SUP \" and \"SDN \", and the cursor moves to \"repetitions \" Enter the required value and press \"Save \".

c. Running speed: The running speed during the spring test is expressed as mm / min. The larger the value, the faster the speed.

d. Displacement (mm): the position of the spring test period.

e. Reference value: the force value corresponding to the segment point.

f. Tolerance: The setting for determining the qualified range of the spring can be set from 0% to 99%. For example, when it is set to 1%, the upper limit is 4.95 and the lower limit is 5.05. When the spring is tested, if the force value is within the upper and lower limits Inside is qualified.

g. Upper limit value / lower limit value: These two parameters do not need user input, and the instrument will automatically derive these two parameters based on the reference value and tolerance.

After setting the spring parameters, modify the value of the selected number to select the spring setting. Modify the selected number and exit.

3.1.4 Operating parameters

Picture 1.png

a. Acceleration and deceleration setting: The acceleration and deceleration setting refers to the acceleration setting of the upper pressure block during measurement. When it is set to 0, it is turned off; when set to 1, it is turned on. The acceleration setting and the measurement point stop setting are in conflict. Only when the measurement point stop setting is set to 0, the acceleration and deceleration settings are valid.

b. Measurement point stop setting: The measurement point stop setting refers to the stop setting of the instrument at each segment point during measurement. When set to 0, it is turned off; when set to 1, it is turned on. In the open state, if the number of segments is set to 5, the instrument will stop once at these 5 segment points during measurement; if in the off state, the instrument will not stop at the segment point during measurement.

c. Continuous test setting: Repeat the test setting. When set to 0, it is turned off; when set to 1, it is turned on.

d. Starting speed: The starting speed setting is only valid when the acceleration / deceleration setting is turned on. The starting speed can be set from 1 to 5, when it is set to 1, that is, the acceleration during measurement is from 1mm / min to 100mm / min. , The faster the acceleration starts. The speed setting unit is mm / min, and the starting speed cannot be set to 0.

e. Without first-stage stiffness: When the first-stage stiffness is not set to 1, it is in the on state. For example, 5 segments are set. When the instrument calculates the average stiffness, the first-stage stiffness will not be calculated; if it is set to 0, then Is off.

f. Sampling rate: the sampling times of the instrument per second, which can be set from 1 to 100.

g. Automatic zero-point high-speed: The high-speed setting of the automatic origin can be set from 1mm / min to 100mm / min. After pressing the automatic origin button during measurement, the spring will return to a relatively close to the origin at the set automatic zero-point high-speed value.

h. Automatic zero-point low speed: Automatic zero-point low speed is a value set on the basis of automatic zero-point high speed, which can be set from 1mm / min to 10mm / min. When the spring returns to a position relatively close to the origin, automatic zero-point low speed starts To make the spring return to the original position more accurately.

i. Zero point high ratio / zero point low ratio: These two parameters are used to determine the force value of the automatic origin. For example, the zero point high ratio is set to 200, that is, the force value is full range * 200/10000, which is 2% of full range. The low zero ratio is set to 3, that is, the force value is full scale * 3/10000, which is 0.03% of full scale. After starting the automatic origin, when the force value is close to 2% of the full scale, the instrument will stop at the position of the automatic origin according to the low percentage of the force value after the force value pauses for a few seconds.

j. Limit protection switch: physical limit switch protection, when set to 1, it is turned on; when set to 0, it is turned off. This function is not recommended for the user to set to the closed state, but due to the limit protection of the spring machine, the default state of the measuring disk is not able to run the bottom plane. If the measured spring is very short, consider closing the limit protection to reach the measuring disk bottom.

k. Displacement absolute mode: when set to 1, it is displacement absolute mode; when set to 0, it is displacement relative mode. For the relative measurement mode and the absolute measurement mode is the difference between the set deformation and the set length. The relative measurement mode is how many millimeters are stretched or compressed, while the absolute mode is expressed as how many millimeters are stretched or compressed.

Relative measurement mode, the displacement required to set the number of spring segments, LENGTH1

At the same time, the force value setting is also required, FORCE1

In the absolute measurement mode, the setting parameters will be different for different spring types

Compression spring, LENGTH1> LENGTH2>…> LENGTH5

Tension spring, LENGTH1
