How To Decrease Variability in Test Results with Specimen Protect

Specimen Protect is a feature of Instron® 6800 and 5900 Series universal testing systems and system retrofits that limits unwanted forces applied to the specimen during loading. When Specimen Protect is enabled, the actuator or crosshead moves automatically to ensure the force on the specimen remains within the pre-set bounds. It is often used to protect specimens or components during set-up, prior to setting operational limits.
