Automated Crossbar

                The LA68 comes with a fully automated crossbar that allows the user to easily clamp / unclamp the crossbar and raise / lower it as well all through a keypad interface screen. It also has (2) available speeds for movement so that large distances can be moved and then a slower, finer adjustment can be made for mounting the specimen in the test area.

The User will interface with the crossbar with the following keypad with access to various functions.

  * Motor Temperature monitor with active integrated cooling limits
 
  * Crossbar Status Indicator
      - Clamp / Release
      - Locked / unlock

  * Crossbar Position with User defined “zero”
 
  * Two-Speed control of movement
       - Fast for large travel adjustments
       - Slow for damper mounting
 
  * 1000 mm range of movement
 
  * 900 lbf of force available to compress / extend the specimen / damper

 

Options:

* Longer columns sold in +12” / 305 mm increments

 

* Safety enclosure / cage

                - Hinged door mounted on the left of the enclosure / cage, closed with latch

                - option will change crating and shipping

 

* CE addition for the enclosure / cage

                - Enclosure is locked and cannot be opened until machine is disabled

                - industry standard double redundant features

 

* NIST traceable calibrations for force and displacement signals

 

* Side loading mechanism

                - pneumatic actuator applying up to 225 lbs. / 1,000 N

                - force driven by user within CTW Probe using analog out function

 

* Additional channels (6) for extra signals / sensors to be collected during operation within CTW Probe

                - additional information at end of document

 

* Digital IO for signaling external devices during the Test sequence

                - Used within a CTW Probe Test Sequence this can be used to turn on / off external devices

                - Includes 8 in / 8 out standard using CTW interface

 

* Analog out of Displacement and force signals

                - User interface to gather real time signals

 

* Analog out 0 - 5 VDC

                - command driven within CTW Probe software
