1. Main Navigation Buttons:
Large buttons to access the main functions of the software. Hotkeys are assigned to the Start/Stop functions and other critical functions on the machine for quick keyboard control.
2. Information Inputs:
Test report information -- item descriptions, customer information, and order information are automatically populated, selected from lists, or manually entered.
3. Test Settings:
These settings control the load, hold time, # of cycles, proof load factor and end action during tests. Depending on the test type, the available options will be changed automatically.
4. Setting Controls:
Test report, load cell, calibration, and initial setup settings are available to easily tailor the testing on the test bed to your needs and help trouble-shoot problems should they arise.
5. Speed Control:
These settings control the overall speed of the test machine when testing. The test speed % setting controls how fast the machine will operate while loading. As the load approaches the set load, the closing speed % setting reduces the speed in order to precisely hit the target load.
6. Sensor Zero Controls:
Sensor zero controls with hotkeys allows the operator to zero a load or elongation reading based on what their testing method describes. Zeroing before testing ensures accurate data recording.
7. Auto / Manual Select:
Auto / manual selection and push and pull controls allow the user to let the software control the loading, or take control themselves for specialized testing.
8. Graph Options:
Graph options allow different display modes such as: Force/Time, Elongation/Time, Force/Elongation, and others that prove useful for testing lifting gear. The operator can also change zoom level, color, graph style and line thickness.
Easy to read graph that auto scales to show the entire test. The graph appears on test reports.
10. Load / Time / Elongation Display:
Dieplays the current and maximum load, elongation, and time. The units of measure are adjustable in the settings portion of the software.
11. Auto-Incrementing Serial Number:
The serial number can be set in an identity, or auto-increment, or be set manually to provide both speed and flexibility when testing.
Multiple curves in one plot
printing are available.
