Instron Connect  Instron Connect provides a remote connection from your system to Instron Technical Support for rapid troubleshooting and support.
Performs Tensile, Compression, Bend, Peel, Tear, Puncture, Friction, and Many More Tests
[New] Brushless AC Motor
[New] Available Smart-Close Pneumatic Air Kit  Finger pinch hazards from pneumatic grips are reduced through lower grip-closing pressure and restricted speed during the set up phase of your test.
[New] Collision Mitigation  Reduce damage to equipment and specimens by stopping the crosshead if a force is detected upon return or during a jog.
[New] Safety Coaching  Clear visual feedback regarding system status to notify operators when it is safe to enter the test space.
[New] Auto-Positioning  Auto Positioning saves the correct fixture separation starting location for each test method. This ensures all operators run each test exactly the same way across all shifts every day.  
[New] Removable Handset  
Specimen Protect  Specimen Protect prevents excessive forces from being applied to the specimen during setup, protecting your critical specimens from damage.
