Servo-Hydraulic UTM 100kN
Meets and exceeds AASHTO, ASTM and EN requirements
100kN universal (tension and compression) load cell
Rigid powder coated steel loading frame with chromed pillars
Fatigue rated double rod, double acting hydraulic actuator
Versatile universal testing machine
The CS-UTM-HYD100 is a versatile universal testing machine designed and developed with the testing of pavement construction materials in mind. A hydraulically operated adjustable crosshead allows for quick and simple setup between tests.
Accurate waveforms are digitally generated by our next generation cDAC controller and applied by the actuator, producing repeatable conditions that are simulative of those created by moving or static vehicles. The actuator is double acting allowing both compressive and tensile forces to be applied to the specimen. Various systems are available for the
measurement of the modulus of unbound materials. The optional programmable temperature control cabinet provides the possibility to perform frequency/temperature sweeps.
Control System and Software
This machine can be controlled using our Standard Acquisition and Control System along with Universal Software. Universal Software is user friendly, intuitive and reliable Windows® software developed using LabVIEW. Universal test software for the development of test methods using static, sinusoidal, haversine, square, triangular with user selected frequencies and data collection rates. Stored test data can be imported into a spreadsheet package to be analyzed by the user. Utilities are included for transducer check, diagnostic routines and calibration.
Alternatively, our next generation digital data acquisition and control unit cDAC Advanced Data Acquisition System brought together in alliance with our flagship software DIMENSION gives you the power to perform the most demanding of tests with your materials testing equipment. cDAC, our next generation class leading digital controller is unparallelled in its field and suitable for advanced testing required for research.
