Impact Testing

Available with IEC/ISO 17025 Certificate of Calibration
ED&D is the only company in the world currently supplying safety products that actually meet or exceed the specified Rockwell hardness’s that are called for in the standards. Manufacturing to these specifications is an extremely difficult process. In addition, we rely on external laboratories that specialize in Rockwell hardness to verify and certify our results. These are corners our competitors’ often cut, but are vital toward providing equipment that meets or exceeds the requirements! If you’ve purchased product safety test equipment that specified a Rockwell hardness requirement, and you didn’t purchase it from us, chances are you’re using a piece of test equipment that DOES NOT meet the requirements.

To determine the mechanical strength of insulated cords, cables, couplers, plug pin insulating sleeves and enclosures in the cold. In compliance with IEC 60811-1-4/ 1985 + corrigendum May 1986 + A1/ 1993 § 8.5 Fig. 2, IEC 60884-1/ 2002-06 § 24.4 Fig 21, CEE 7/ 1963 § 24e Fig. 31, EN 60811-1-4/ 1995 § 8.5 Fig. 2, VDE 0473 Part 811-1-4/ March 1996 § 8.5 Fig. 2
F28.13 Iron Drop Tester
above: F28.13 Iron Drop Tester in use.
Product Details

This product is intended for drop testing of hand-held irons to clause 21.101 of IEC60335-01, EN60335-1, UL60335-1, CSA60335-1 and similar UL, CSA, IEC, EN and other standards requiring repetitive drop testing of irons.
above: Freefalling tester
Product Details

This tester generates fall-down tests for specimens. The specimen is placed on a platform that falls down 50mm rapidly, in free-fall form. The test equipment is floor standing and consists of:
  • Wooden Platform No. 1 to place the sample upon. This platform falls down from a height of 50mm to reach Wooden Platform No. 2, which is the support.
  • The drivers are pneumatic cylinders. The cylinders first move Platform No. 1 upwards slowly and then let it quickly fall down against Platform No. 2.
  • The control unit consists of an ON/OFF cycling timer to direct up and down movements, and a counter with an automatic stop.

CTP-01 Coax Test Plug
above: Coaxial socket testing
Product Details

Used to test the hazardous live parts from accessible parts of Antenna Coaxial Sockets mounted on the apparatus; they should withstand mechanical stresses such as Endurance, Impact, and Torque. The Coax Test Plug is a high-precision probe made in exact accordance with IEC standards such as IEC 60065:2000 - the drawing from the standard is illustrated below the photo. The plug is intended for testing Antenna Coax Sockets. The plug is made entirely of stainless steel. The test plug is intended to be used in 3 ways to consult your specific safety standard for your requirements:
  • Endurance Test: Inserted and withdrawn 100 times
  • Impact Test: Inserted and hit 3 times with a 0.5 J impact hammer (use ED&D model F22.50 or model 5110.05J impact hammer
  • Torque Test: Inserted and pulled with a force of 50N via the hole in the CTP-01 (use ED&D model PFI-200N force gauge).

All ED&D probes come with NIST traceable certificates of calibration. There is an additional fee for the data, and it must be ordered in advance. ED&D utilizes ISO/IEC 17025 quality systems.
