ELE International has launched a new automatic control unit for concrete and cement testing. The ADR Touch Control Pro system brings the latest technology into the materials testing laboratory, whilst also combining a wide range of new features that have been developed specifically in response to feedback from ELE’s global network of customers.
A key feature of the new machines is LAN connectivity for remote control via ELE’s PC based APP, known as ‘ELE Logger.’ This means that laboratory staff will be able to initiate and monitor tests away from the lab, and service staff will be able to conduct remote diagnostics.
All of the most common standard tests are built into the machine and users are guided intuitively through the testing process. The new 7 inch, high-resolution, colour touch-screen is scratch and splash proof, and is located in a flexible head that can be rotated to 75 degrees and tilted to 45 degrees. The screen display language is available in a choice of English, Spanish, Portuguese or French, and users can set tests as ‘favourites’ for faster start-up.
Automatic sample loading is provided by a closed-loop microprocessor controlled system, with automatic stress calculation. All test results are logged with the machine serial number, and load vs. time is plotted in real-time.
