CS2-225 and CS2-1100 Motorized Test Stand



 The Chatillon® CS2 digital force testers are revolutionary systems optimized for production testing applications, including medical devices, plastics, packaging, textiles, rubber and electronics to name a few. No personal computer is required; no proprietary software is required; no knowledge of programming languages is required.

This easy, flexible and affordable Tester uses a 2 in 1 Laptop Console in both Production and Laboratory environments. Two options are available. Both the CS2-225 and CS2-1100 provide an easy-to-use, intuitive and straight-forward method for tensile, compression, sheer, flexural, peel, or advanced multi-stage testing that conform to ISO or ASTM testing procedures.

With the CS2 you can perform:

  • Limit testing to load, displacement, height or time
  • Break testing—sharp or percentage
  • Multi-stage, cyclic tests and height measurements
  • Peel testing
  • Spring Testing
  • Capture 1st and 2nd Peak
  • RS-232 Auto Result Export

When repetitive testing and exporting of results is important, but you don’t need advanced materials test functionality, the CS2 is an excellent choice.


  • Force measurements made easy: Accurate results, easy programming, maximum throughput and minimal operator training.
  • One-click operation: Simple and intuitive; with one-click access to favorite tests as well as test results.
  • Modern design & technology: Linear guide technology, pre-loaded ball screws, and advanced software compensation ensures high displacement measurement precision. 11 Inch 2-in-1 Laptop Console and easy to use, touchscreen or keyboard.
  • Large, flexible work area: Up to 180 mm throat depth for large specimens and a wide range of grips and fixtures available.
  • Sample testing and quality assurance: Immediate pass/fail output, automatic data export, controlled access levels and barcode scanning functionality
  • Security: Two levels of user access: supervisor and operator. Both can be password protected.
  • Plug & play: A self-contained 2-in-1 Laptop Console using Windows 10 Pro. Just turn on the power and you’re ready to start your test.
  • Saving, Archiving, Exporting Data: Test results are automatically saved and can be recalled to analyze results or to continue testing a batch run. Results and statistics are exported to CSV and PDF formats. Automatic export of results via RS232 interface after each test.
