Model 2100 Life Cycle Tester

Model 2100

The DataSwitch Model 2100 Life Cycle Tester will test membrane switch keys individually at a rate of one million strokes in approximately 48 hours. The membrane switch is placed under an electrical load of 5 Milliamps DC, and is checked twice during each test cycle: once for resistance level during the 'down' stroke, and once for shorts during the 'up' stroke.

Dual counters store the number of good cycles as well as the number of bad cycles (or misses). Setting the good/miss switch on the control panel will select either counter for the LED display.

Programming and learning time are not required. Test parameters of speed, force, impact, and resistance threshold are operator adjustable. Load current is factory set at 4-5 Milliamps. Compressed air is required, so either clean shop air or a small (1/2 horsepower) air compressor must be provided. Adjustable vertical and horizontal posts on the fixture plate allow positioning of the probe over the keypad to be tested.

MODEL 2100 LIFE CYCLE TESTER PRODUCT ACCESSORIES

Silicone Test Probes
Model 2150 Remote Input: provides interface coupling between the tester and an external power source used to supply load current to the switch being tested. This allows any combination of voltage and current to be used instead of the factory preset values of 4-5 Milliamps at 12 VDC. Can be used for testing high volume connectorless tails.

OPTIONAL FEATURE OF MODEL 2100 LIFE CYCLE TESTER

Dual Range Switch: Adds a second test range to allow testing of membrane switches with loop resistance of 0-30,000 Ohms.
