There are many different industries and types of businesses that rely on wire pull test equipment to ensure that they are using the proper amount of tensile force to achieve job-specific standards. At CSC Force Measurement, we sell three different models of Mark-10 wire testing tools. This includes the popular Mark-10 Wire Crimp Pull Tester (WT3-201), the Mark-10 Wire Crimp Pull Sensor (RO6 Series), and the Mark-10 Motorized Wire Pull Tester (WT3-201M). There are many unique qualities and benefits of each device, so it is essential to figure out which one will best meet your needs and help you to achieve your goals. Wire crimp pull test equipment works by separating a crimped terminal, connector, or ferrule from a wire. Depending on the job at hand, you might use wire crimp or non-crimp pull testers on the production line or in the field. There are many uses for these Mark-10 wire testing tools, which can also be used for life-span testing. The best way to figure out which type is best for your project is to browse our selections or contact our team directly for a professional consultation.
The Mark-10 Wire Crimp Pull Tester (WT3-201M)
This is the motorized version of Mark-10 wire pull test equipment, and it is designed to measure pull-off forces of up to 200 lbF or 1 kN for wire and tube terminations. It conforms to numerous industry standards, including UL, ISO, ASTM, SAE, and MIL, and can meet other requirements for destructive testing. The versatility of this tool allows it also to be used for non-destructive testing, such as pulling to a load or maintaining a load for a specified amount of time. This allows the user to meet the industry-standard requirements of UL 486 A/B. Special features include programmable pass/fail limits with red and green indicators and helpful audio alerts, which work to identify non-conforming samples.
With the ability to accommodate most insulation types and wire sizes of up to AWG 3, this is a very versatile motorized wire pull tester. If you want to make sure that this device will work for your needs, samples can be sent to CSC Force Measurement for evaluation prior to purchase. The on-board data storage and statistical calculations for the Mark-10 WT3-201M pull tester allows for up to 2,000 readings with available date and time stamp for each saved data point. Transfer data easily to your PC or via another data collector using USB, RS-232, Mitutoyo (Digimatic), or analog outputs. This product includes the MESUR Lite data acquisition software, which can tabulate continuous or single point data with a one-click export to Excel for further data manipulation.

Manual Wire Pull Test Equipment
For those who prefer a hand-operated solution for measuring wire crimp pull-off forces, the MR06-200 features ergonomic handles and a convenient tensioning mechanism that is designed to make field measurements a breeze. It can handle applications up to 200 lbF or 1 kN and a range of diameters up to 0.25 in or 6.4 mm. Compatible with the Mark-10 Series 7i, 5i, and 3i digital indicators, this device has an accuracy of ± 0.5 percent of full scale + indicator. Simply squeeze the handles together to increase tension on the sample until a break occurs. A Mark-10 indicator can be used to record the peak force for data collection and review.

The Mark-10 Wire Crimp Pull Tester (WT3-201 Series) is designed to measure the pull-off force of crimped wire and tube terminations on applications of up to 200 lbF or 1 kN for crimp pull force. This device is somewhere in the middle between the motorized WT3-201M Series device and the hand-operated MR06-200 Wire Crimp Pull Sensor. It features an adjustable wire terminal grip with multiple slots for wire diameters up to AWG 3 and can accommodate most insulation types. Similar to the motorized version, samples can be sent to CSC Force Measurement for evaluation prior to purchase. It features a large, backlit graphic LCD screen for easy-to-read values, including real-time force, peak force, programmable pass/fail limits, unit of measurement, and more. Data collection and transfer are similar to the WT3-201M Series, and on-board storage for up to 1,000 readings is included.
