Automax SMART line, fully automatic tester

The automatic system controlled by digital unit and/or PC, featuring Energy Saving technology and two frame control, expandable to three

  • PC control option
    When connected to PC, the system is fully computerized and controlled by the Data Manager software
  • Accurate load rate control for quality testing
    An accurate and constant load rate application without large fluctuations (typically 10% of the pre-set value) not only guarantees testing to Standards and reliability of results, but also allows the test to be performed by operators who do not have experience.
  • The advantage of the test automation.
    The test cycle with closed loop digital feedback is automatically performed by simply pressing the start button. The load-time graph and the actual load rate are displayed in real time during the test. Correct test execution according to the selected Standard, is continuously and automatically controlled.
  • Energy Saving test system
    “ES technology” features accurate oil flow control, conforming to Standards, resulting in no oil dispersion, silent operation, cold oil temperature and low energy consumption  (save over 30% compared to traditional systems).
  • High flexibility: can control testing frames from 100 to 5000 kN
    AUTOMAX  can fit all our compression and flexural testing frames performing accurate and reliable tests also for low strength results. It can also be used for other make compatible hydraulic compression and flexural frames
  • Third frame control option
    AUTOMAX can be upgraded, as option, with distributor block for the non simultaneous control of a third frame as, for example, Flexural testing frame and Cement compression frame. Active frame selection is made via the display/software.An ideal and economical solution to the automation of the most important tests on concrete and cement specimens.
  • Recording facility of up to 10 test profiles for each channel allowing quick and easy test start

This introduction has been designed to fit all our models of compression and flexural frames ranging from 100 to 5000 kN. Has been further upgraded using the latest technologies thus maintaining a very competitive price. The Automatic compression testers fitted with the Automax System have been the most reliable, and advanced solution for the Central Concrete Testing Laboratories, Private Laboratories and Contractors

Very Often, so be used as an old fashioned compression tester our Automax Smart-Line, thus granting high accuracy and reliability. This application requires a suitable pressure transducer and connecting cable. See \ # pressure-transducers \ #
The Automax System is also offered as a part of the machine compression ( Automax, Super-Automatic EN testers for cubes, cylinders and blocks , Automax, Super-Automatic ASTM testers for cylinders ) but it is also available as a stand-alone control console . The two solutions are technically identical and can be selected according to customer requirements
Also, the front panel of the electronic control system is programmed to be loaded into a serial printer. See Upgrading options.
PC software 82-SW / DM (new release compatible only with SMART LINE units) for PC remote control , real time acquisition and management of test data. See accessories.
