The microprocessor-based system features a stepper-motor drive system and a 7" touch-screen display that allows the operator to control and monitor all test functions.
Like all Elite series machines, the HM-5760 is built around Humboldt's integral, 4-channel data logger with touch-screen control, which allows the HM-5760 to be used as a standalone device capable of full test control and data logging. It can also be controlled by a networked computer at any location with access to the network.
The HM-5760 is supplied complete with a 2,000 lbf (10kN) capacity load cell; 1" (25.4mm) horizontal strain transducer, and a 0.4" (10.2mm) vertical strain transducer. Shear box assemblies and related accessories are not included and should be ordered separately.
Elite series direct shear machines are built with durable, high-quality components and feature the use of a stepper motor, precision gears and gear box to ensure smooth and reliable operation, as well as precise results. In stand-alone mode, these direct shear machines provide a 7" (178mm) touch-screen controller, giving you finger-tip control of your testing processes, as well as providing real-time, visual views of your data in both tabular and graphic formats. These new waterproof, touch screens provide colorful, at-a-glance monitoring of testing functions without the use of a computer. Operators can see all the data in several formats at the machine while the test is running. Data can then be viewed simultaneously or downloaded later to a computer in the lab, in the next room or at a different location, while also providing report generation capabilities from within Humboldt's NEXT software or our enhanced HM-5700SW Direct Shear Reporting Software.
