The Automax 5 automatic concrete compression testers represent the more sophisticated and advanced evolution of the usual compression testers. The Automax 5 features the complete automatic test cycle with closed loop digital feedback. Once the specimen parameters are entered, it is sufficient to press the start button to complete the test.
The Automax Compression machine essential consist of a compression frame and a hydraulic and control unit housed in a console.
Four column rigid welded steel construction frame with a compression platen of 165mm dia and a minimum hardness of 600 HV30. The maximum piston travel is 50mm
Dual stage pump, centrifugal low pressure high delivery stage for fast approach and radial multi piston high pressure stage for test execution
Oil Capacity: 4.5 litres
Usable Oil Capacity: 3.5 litres
Ram travel: 50mm
Fast approach speed: 40mm/min
Voltage: 110V; 60Hz -1 Ph
The Hydraulic group can be fitted with a distribution block for connection and non –simultaneous control of a compatible second frame. ( eg flexural frame or special compression frame)
The read out has large touch screen 240x128 pixel graphic display, 2 channel resolution 130000div(better than 0.1% of full scale) suitable for connection of a second transducer /frame and a permanent memory of 128 MB for storing thousands of tests including test results, data and load vs time diagrams.
The controller also has a serial output for real time and delayed data down loading to PC, a USB port for Inkjet A4 printer.
The system applies automatically the correct load rate confirming to the information introduced by the control panel. The load rate value is continuously monitored and can be printed in the test report when connected to the PC to certify the correct load rate application
Software for real time acquisition and management of test data.
The Automax 5 series machines are fitted with
