General description
General description
Introduction
Very often may be convenient to update an old compression tester, replacing for example the old pressure gauge, with a modern and much more accurate load measuring system as our Digimax readout unit. This application requires a suitable pressure transducer and connecting cable. See Pressure transducers

Technical specifications

The Digimax digital readout unit features:

HARDWARE
  • 132000 points high resolution/stability analogical channels
  • Touch screen graphic display 240x128 pixel, icons driven showing figures and diagrams
  • Sampling rate 50/sec
  • Large storing capacity on USB pen drive of test data downloadable to PC
  • Ethernet port for communication with PC
  • Integrated graphic printer as optional. See accessories
FIRMWARE
  • Simultaneous display of load, specific load, actual load rate and load/time graph
  • LAN connection to PC for transmission, in real time, during loading, of load and time values
  • Easy firmware update through Ethernet port
  • Memory management with display of tests stored in USB pen, download of data to internal printer or PC, delete single test or reset entire memory
  • Multi-coefficient calibration procedure with automatic storage of data without manual editing (using a suitable load cell and readout unit)
  • Recording facility of up to 10 test procedures for each channel including: type of test (e.g. compression, flexural, indirect tensile), specimen size and shape, load rate, standard in use, and other general information. Each one of the recorded test procedures can be activated by default to save time.
  • Compatible with the Data Manager software 82-SW/DM, new release tailored on the requirements of laboratories for construction materials, for real time data acquisition, display and management
  • 12 languages, Unit selection, etc.
  • Screen saver

Additional Information

Standards
The following Standards refer essentially to the execution of the testing procedure (eg. accuracy, calculation of test results etc.) as the mechanical and physical requirements refer to the testing frame and hydraulic group which has to be selected conforming the Standard in use, the shape and dimensions and the expected strength of the specimens.
  • EN 12390-3  Compressive strength of test specimens
  • EN 12390-4  Specification for compression testing machine
  • EN 12390-5  Flexural strength of test specimens
  • EN 12390-6  Tensile splitting strength of test specimens
  • EN 1338        Concrete paving blocks
  • EN 1339        Concrete paving flags
  • EN 1340        Concrete kerb units
  • EN 196-1      Determination of cement strength
  • EN 772-1      Determination of compressive strength of masonry units (blocks)
  • ASTM C39    Compressive strength of cylindrical concrete specimens
  • ASTM C78    Flexural strength of concrete. Third point loading
  • ASTM C293  Flexural strength of concrete. Center point loading
  • ASTM C496  Splitting tensile test of cylindrical concrete specimens
  • AASHTO T22 Compressive strength of cylindrical concrete specimens
