The CHATILLON® TCD110 Series is an advanced force testing system optimized for production, quality control and engineering applications.
The TCD110 Series is designed for low force applications. It
is particularly well-suited for medical device applications
where precision control and high accuracy are required.
Combine with our food texture fixtures, it is an excellent
solution for food texture analysis.
a rugged frame with high performance, closed-loop motion control;
and an intelligent load sensing system
with measuring accuracies better than 0.1% full scale.
The TCD console features a high resolution color graphical display featuring menus, function and
numeric keys and status indicators that assist the user in setup, operation and analysis. Information may be displayed in large-format tabular and graphical
formats for easy viewing.
The TCD110 frame
operates from 0.001 to 20.0-inches per minute (0.02 to 510 mm/minute) and employs an advanced closed-loop PID
controller for precision travel (accuracy better than 0.25% unloaded), ideal for applications such as spring testing where exact distance control is required.
The TCD System permits the user to measure heights based on a datum or absolute position. Deflection compensation is standard. Standard test setups
for load limits, distance limits, time limits, break tests, rupture tests, cycling and loop tests are included.
No computer software is necessary.

Plug & Play Sensors
The TCD System uses our exclusive Chatillon TLC
Series sensor technology. Sensors plug into the TCD
Console and the console recognizes and automatically
downloads all sensor characteristics. There are also
safe guards that can help prevent an operator from
using the incorrect sensor on a particular test.
Plus the TCD System maintains a load history within
memory and can display time-stamped overload events.
Seven sensors ranging from 250g (0.5 lb) to 225 lb
(100 kg) are available. These same load sensors can
also be interchanged with the Chatillon DFS-R-ND
Series force gauges. Sensors come standard with a
certificate of calibration with NIST data and
uncertainty. They can be calibrated to better than
0.1% full scale or 0.5% of indicated reading when
calibrated on-site in accordance with ASTM E4 or ISO
An innovative thumbwheel is ideal for setting up
your fixturing. Rotating the thumbwheel causes the
crosshead to move upward/downward. Rotate the
thumbwheel slowly and the crosshead moves slowly.
Rotate fast and the crosshead moves fast, up to 50
inches (1270mm) per minute.
Dual over-travel limits, located on the front
console, help prevent crosshead overshooting and
sensor overloads. A graduated rule along the column
can be used to preset these limits to specific
Pinch Load Limits
The TCD System features a Pinch Load capability that
allows you to enter a load value up to 15 lbf (7 kgf).
When the machine is operated manually using the
thumbwheel or DOWN key, the crosshead will stop
moving when the system measures the pinch load
value. This helps protect the user during a manual
The TCD System’s T-slot table contains multiple
standard through holes for mounting various types of
threaded fixtures and eye-end adapters. The fixture
mounting block can be easily positioned to ensure
proper alignment with the load measuring sensor.
We Speak Your Language
The TCD Console features multiple languages so your
operators can perform tests and setups in the
language they are most comfortable using.
