A special ZwickRoell testing system is used for this, consisting of an electro-mechanical testing actuator
(Fmax 5 kN) mounted in an adjustable test frame. This enables both horizontal and vertical orientation. The testing actuator can be operated at test speeds up to 500 mm/s,with a stroke of up to 200 mm. The system is equipped with an I/O module to enable external measuring devices used for determining electrical characteristic values to be integrated with a digital interface. A special test sequence for mechanical fatigue was developed for the testXpert II testing software
, with integrated measurement phases for measuring electrical characteristic values.
