Product Description

Shore ceased all production operations in 2012 and their products are no longer available. CCSi continues to support Shore equipment in regard to service, calibration and ISO/IEC 17025 certification.


The Model 902 automatic operating stand was developed to enhance the full potential of the (discontinued) DuroTronic™ Models 1000 & 2000 Digital Durometers.

This design offers fully automated operation, providing consistent load, controlled rate of descent and a downward motion dwell time adjustable from 0 to 99 s using the timer integral to the DuroTronic™ 2000 and the older DuroTronic™ 1000 models that were so equipped.

The Model 902 accepts information from the DuroTronic™ through an RS—232C interface and allows full SPC data collection through another interface to any IBM® compatible computer.

All Shore® Round, Digital, and most Quadrant durometer styles (except Types OO, OOO—S, and M) may also be used on the Model 902 automatic operating stand. However, the use of these durometers requires that the dwell be manually controlled using the push—button switch located on the stand and can not incorporate the electronic SPC functions of the DuroTronic™ durometers.

Recent revisions to ASTM D2240 now include specifications for durometer operating stands. The rate of descent and the distance between the durometer contact surface and the specimen are but two of the many critical testing parameters which are specified!

The Shore® operating stands (manufactured after 2003) conform to ASTM D2240 guidelines. Modification of operating stand Models 900 & 902, manufactured prior to 2003, is available at a reasonable cost.
