The unique System Configuration Builder makes it possible to define reproducible test conditions and offers maximum safety for the user and testing system.
testXpert III always knows HOW, WHERE, AND WITH WHAT to test!
If the materials testing machine has several test areas, each test arrangement will be assigned a particular test area.
The crosshead position of the materials testing machine as well as the upper and lower soft limits are saved in each system configuration, providing additional safety for the machine and the user. The crosshead stops automatically once it reaches the set values. When switching on the materials testing machine, the crosshead drives to the set start position for the selected system configuration and testing can start immediately. After the test, the crosshead will drive back automatically to the start position. Due to the individually adjustable quick return speed, the next test can be started without delay.
Additional safety settings are preset to protect the extensometer
You can set force limits for the entire testing system via the sensor configuration. For example, the logical force limit for a materials testing machine with a force of Fmax 5 kN in combination with a load cell with the same performance would be Fmax 5 kN. If the mounted test tools or specimen grips are designed for loading only 2.5 kN however, the machine will be warned and stopped before reaching Fmax 2.5 kN. This ensures that the weakest link is always protected from being overloaded.
testXpert III also offers an overview of the status of the load cell.
Each saved system configuration can be assigned a test program. If a new tester would like to repeat the same test the following day he will be required to use the exact test arrangement that was saved. This ensures that all tests for a standard are performed under the same conditions. As a result, the test conditions are reproducible and the test results are repeatable.
