General description
General description
The AUTOMAX E-Modulus is specifically designed for the determination of Elastic Modulus and Poisson's Ratio. It is also used for automatic execution of compression, flexure and splitting tests on concrete and cement when connected to a suitable testing frames. The console consists of an ergonomic cabinet which houses the hydraulic system, the electronic boards and the all-in-one PC.  

PC and software ensure the remote control of the complete system (frame and console) for automatic E-Modulus test execution: rapid platen approach, zeroing, application of user-defined cycles of load/unload ramps, identification of failure load, verification of conformity to the selected Standard, calculation of results, graphical and numerical management of results.
The console is supplied also with DATAMANAGER software for compression, flexure and splitting tests execution to EN and ASTM.
