CONTROL AND DATA ACQUISITION SYSTEM (CDAS)
Real Time Dashboard display shows transducer levels,
computed data and charted data before, during and after
the test has completed.
Dynamic image update feature shows visual image
representation of specimen failure Multi- axes
representation for clear visual presentation of test status for
Very user friendly presentation simplifies specimen setup in
The dashboard display feature of Testlab provides the user
with an intuitive visual representation of the current status
of both the machine and test method. The dashboard shows
live transducer level measurements along with nominated
key test data information and real time chart updates. This
feature is individually customisable for each method file.
Pavetest has already available dashboard designs for the
more sophisticated tests including multi station TSRST.

Simple and easy to use gluing jig for preparing TSRST specimens.
The jig provides for perfect alignment and adjustment for different
sized specimens. The clamping force is easily set and ensures the
end plates are glued perpendicular to the specimen.
The basic MULTI TSRST includes the main frame, the CDAS, the
climatic chamber, the refrigeration unit and at least one between
the electro-mechanical or servo-hydraulic station. All available
configurations are summarized in the following table:
Multiple stations configuration (B282-11, B282-12, B282-14,
B282-15) allow to run tsrst tests with all stations simultaneously.
In this configurations, utst, rt, tct, utsst and utcst tests are performed
on one station at a time. With combined configuration
(electromechanical and servo-hydraulic) utcst must be performed
with servo-hydraulic station.
