EN 1426 | ASTM D5 | AASHTO T49 | JIS K 2207 | IP 49 | DIN 52210 | AFNOR T66-004 | ASTM D217
Main features
  • Fully automatic operation. The entire test cycle is automatically performed by simply pressing the start button on the touch screen display.
  • Automatic zero point determination to eliminate any operator error during needle positioning.
  • Penetration measurement via contactless displacement transducer, with 0.01 mm resolution.
  • Real time display of penetration/time curve.
General description
General description
A compact instrument, microprocessor controlled, using the latest technologies and programming tools. It includes a 6" lateral touch screen display, intuitive and easy to use, which shows the penetration/time curve and can display and average up to 6 tests. 

The instrument reaches the test start point automatically, however it is supplied complete with led lamp to ease alternative manual positioning.

The vertical movement is performed by a high precision stepper motor and measured by a contactless displacement transducer. The device also has the possibility to recall the vertical position for repeated tests.

The apparatus is supplied complete with outfit for penetration of bituminous materials (needle, needle holder, 50 g weight, 150 g additional weight and 6 containers), centering guide, anodized aluminium base plate with spirit level and adjustable leveling feet. The test should be performed placing the penetration cup in thermostatically controlled water, using a suitable device as the 81-B0102/C Digital circulation water bath with conditioning vessel. See accessories.
