The electronic Plate Load Tester AX 01 makes it possible to determine the load-bearing capacity and deformability of soils in a simple manner. The load-deformation lines and the deformation modulus Ev1, Ev2 are determined according to DIN 18134:2001-09 and E DIN 18134:2010-04 (plate load test). Due to the water-proofed housing, external buttons and an illuminated display, it can also be used in adverse environmental conditions. Test records can be printed out already on the construction site. The results from the plate load test saved on an SD card during the test can be transferred to a PC and are available for further processing in Microsoft Excel®.
