A Cord Anchorage Pull Machine tests the cord retention of connectors, tools, and appliances created by their cord anchorages. The machine tests a sample by applying an intermittent tensile load to the cable while supporting the anchorage. The cord tension is controlled with hanging weights and can be adjusted in 10N increments, determined by the mass or rated current of the sample under test. The machine will automatically stop when the programmed number of pulls are completed.
