Test Description:
The holder is placed with the test specimen centered in the lower plate of the compression tester. When the test begins, the inferior plate will displace upward, and a load will begin to be applied to the specimen. This force is captured by means of a load cell coupled to the upper plate. When the system detects the sample breaking, the inferior plate returns to the initial position at the maximum speed.


User Interface:
Machine controlled by means of a touch screen and two auxiliary buttons.
• Through the visualization and control screen, the total control and configuration of the machine can be managed.
• Easy and intuitive operation of the control menu, configurable in different languages.
• Possibility of selecting and defining multiple test results. Two result tables with a maximum of 10 result types and 20 test results per table.
• Possibility of display the test results in graphic way.
• Statistical control. Mean value, standard deviation, and maximum and minimum values.
• Different configurable units for the force, extension, and speed parameters.
• Test maneuver with automatic return to initial position at maximum speed (150 mm/min).
• Setting of different breaking and preload levels.
• Periodical program updates (without additional costs).


Software Control (Optional):
The machine, through its RS-232 connection, allows the total control and management of the test, by means of the PTA NOVILOG Software. It will be possible to preset tests, save test results graphical curves, carry out test reports, etc.
