Construct simple and complex multi-step test setups. Create your test method to an accepted standard or to your specific testing needs.


Create your test method and then email to other locations so that your testing is always performed in the exact same manner with the same measurements and results.


Tensile and Compression steps are used to perform "go to moves". Go to a Limit or Break at a velocity or load rate. You can choose exceptions for any move and decide whether to collect data during the move.


Shown is an operator prompt based on a conditional branching state. If the measured result is "out-of-tolerance", a message is displayed alerting the operator. If the result is within the tolerance range, no message is displayed.


Hold steps are used for creep and relaxation testing. You can hold at a limit for a specified duration up to 24 hours, if necessary.


Cycle based on any of your steps in your test method. You may cycle up to 1000 times or for a duration of up to 24 hours at a sampling rate of 1Hz. Each test may have a maximum of 100,000 data points.


The Sample Definition step lets you name your material, specify the shape and its dimensions. You can enter dimensions digitally using a Starrett micrometer, or caliper.


Shown is the setup dialog for the optional I/O step. It


allows you to control and activate external devices such as annunciators through the test frame's digital or analog I/O channels.


Shown are the various test setup step types, including specialized steps available using the optional Automation Builder.
