Easy-to-use automated testing work flow with Humboldt's HCM-5080 Automatic Controller

Humboldt’s HCM-5080 automatic controller is designed to make fast work of testing cylinders, cubes and beams with all of Humboldt’s compression frames.

The HCM-5080 provides an easy-to-use automated testing work flow— just choose the test standard you wish to run from the menu and the controller will quickly guide you through the setup. Choose the “Fast Testing” option and your compression frame will run tests as fast as you can load your cylinders, cubes or blocks while sequentially numbering each test automatically. Just click on the start button.

The HCM-5080 controller features a robust, reliable and cool-running 1hp pump, which works together with the controller for full operational control.

 The controller provides two channel inputs for load, which allows for the control of two separate compression frames when using the HCM-HP4014 selector valve accessory. The HCM-5080 also provides two additional channel inputs for displacement, which provides an easy solution for determining Poisson’s ration and Young’s modulus testing.
