EN 12390-4 | EN 772-1
PRINCIPALES CARACTERÍSTICAS
Smart automatic and connected concrete Power and Control System for standard failure testing.

PILOT PRO is the best choice for Qualtiy Control laboratories to carry out a high throughput of routine failure tests including compression, flexure and indirect tensile tests.
  • Huge boost in efficiency and error elimination: LinK-LAB – Integrated testing station solution for seamless connection and data inputs from many ancillary devices for dimensional measurement, weight, bar code, etc.
  • Automatic – time saving: test-cycle automation maximizes productivity and ensures tests are performed accurately according to pre-set methods, eliminating operator variables.
  • Highly accurate and energy saving: Our DC motor technology quietly and efficiently delivers super accurate load control at both low-speed and low-loads.
  • Intuitive, quick and simple operation: The integrated control system features an intuitive 5.1” color graphical display, which works like a tablet or smart-phone, and makes PILOT PRO quick and simple to operate.
  • Standards compliant – peace of mind: Hardware and firmware are in total compliance with all the main international concrete testing standards including ASTM C39 and EN 12390-3.
  • Multilingual functionality: The system is available in multiple languages and is fully compatible with non-Latin characters for Chinese, Cyrillic (and more).

Información Adicional

Verification of force transfer
The conformity of the compression tester to the EN 12390-4 requirements in terms of stability (force transfer) is performed by the verification of the self-alignment of machine components and the restraint on movement of the upper platen.
The compliance of all our EN testers to these stringent requirements is precisely verified using specific apparatus (82-E0105/1 and 82-P0804/E). An incorrect load application may cause premature sample failure and, consequently the resultant strength could be significantly lower than the true resistance.
