General description
General description
IPC Global's UTM-16P Servo-pneumatic testing systems are precision engineered to accomplish your thoughest research challenges.
Designed and built to IPC Global's highest standard for Civil Engineering laboratories, these systems deliver superior reliability and accuracy with proficient performance of tension, compression and dynamic loading analysis on all types of materials.

Available in two versions: standard and with motorized crosshead for quickly and easy test set-up. 

The heart of all these products is the IMACS, Multi-Axis Digital Controller and Data Acquisition System which delivers leading edge performance, unparalled real time computer computer control an flexible data acquisition, together with the powerful and professional UTS Software draws upon over 30 years of advanced materials testing experience. Used and relied upin by hundreds of researchers, you can buy with confidence knowing your test results having immediate credibility.

IPC Global's Hydraulic Power Supply (HPS), part of the machine, has been designed with integrated VFD (variable speed) technology assuring energy saving and noise reduction. HPS features return line filtration, remote starting and control via virtual pendant, air cooling and indication for low oil, over temperature and dirty filter. The system provides electronically adjustable oil pressure allowing greater control and safety. Oil accumulators further improve control accuracy while the high performance filters ensure long life system protection and reduced maintenance costs.

Additional Information

IMACS Digital Controller and Data Acquisition System

IPC Global's world leading IMACS digital controller and data acquisition system is at the heart of all our servo-controlled testing systems. It provides excellent waveform fidelity from integrated channel acquisition and control functions, at speeds of up to 5 kHz simultaneously on all channels.
The IMACS utilizes flash-based firmware which allows updates of all modules onsite. Analogue inputs auto-calibrate on power-up giving confidence in readings and a low data noise performance with over-sampled data.
With up to 8 expandable control axes and 32 data acquisition channels, you can have total confidence in your testing results. It has an exceptional data resolution and control with up to 20 bit effectiive auto-ranging data acquisition and a real-time digital computer control with 32 bit processing.
Three versions are available: for Servo-Hydraulic, Servo-Pneumatic and Servo-Electromechanical systems.

UTS Software

IPC Global's powerful and professional UTS Software draws upon over 30 years of advanced materials testing experience. IPC Global's test and control software is known for its simplicity in use, clarity of results and analytical power.
It was developed from expert knowledge of applications to run automated test routines and therefore speeds up testing. It is written in powerful, professional Delphi and features real-time graphs for monitoring the specimen under test; portable binary data files or sharing, reviewing and analysis; and "live" transducer levels display.
The purpose-built UTS applications have dialogue help boxes for automated test routines and easy-to-read graphic screens for test set up and reviewing. The test is totally programmable from the user.
