MCC, multifunctional control console

Main features
  • Completely automatic execution of Compression, Flexure and Indirect tensile tests as well as test cycles to determine the ELASTIC MODULUS
  • MCC Multitest version also suitable for tests under displacement and strain control.
  • Can control up to 2 test frames extendable to 4 with the suitable upgrade
  • Dual control system through PC and keyboard display
  • Multi-language software with facility to introduce user defined text (Latin alphabet only)
General description
General description
Automatic hydraulic systems for static and low frequency dynamic tests on building materials under control of Load/Stress, Displacement, Strain.
Ideal both for traditional tests, such as compression and flexure on concrete, cement, mortar, blocks etc. and cyclic tests for the determination of secant elastic modulus (E) (MCC Classic), and also for measuring, for example, the ductility and fracture energy of concrete reinforced with fibres (FRC) and lined with polymers (FRP), or the toughness of sprayed concrete slabs (shotcrete) under concentrated load tests (MCC Multitest). The console is connectable to up to four test  frames.
Two versions available:
MCC Classic 50-C8422/C for the automatic execution of compression, flexure, indirect tensile tests and determination of Elastic Modulus and
MCC Multitest 50-C8422/M for the same performances of MCC Classic plus tests under Displacement and Strain control.
