PILOT PRO is CONTROLS’ new versatile automatic Smart-Line control consoles for standard failure tests. It is the best choice for Quality Control laboratories to carry out a high throughput of routine failure tests including compression, flexure and indirect tensile tests.
Designed to fit all CONTROLS models of compression and flexural frames ranging from 100 to 5000 kN, it's been further upgraded using the latest technologies thus maintaining a very competitive price. The automatic compression testers with the PILOT PRO System have been the most reliable, economic and advanced solution for the standard concrete testing laboratories.
50-C10P02: PILOT SMART line, Automatic control console, for connection of one testing frame. 230 V, 50-60 Hz, 1 ph
50-Q60P/PR: Upgrade of a PILOT PRO system to incorporate a serial graphic printer, allowing results (including a load/time plot) to be printed at the end of test.
50-SW/DM: Datamanager PC Software suitable for data acquisition, processing and filing. Allows printout of customized test certificates. LAN cable included.
PILOT PRO Smart-Line control console requires a suitable pressure transducer and connecting cable in order to operate a testing frame. Factory upgrade for a second frame connection and control (not simultaneously) available on request.
LinkLAB is CONTROLS’ new proprietary Laboratory Connectivity Package.
It allows your PILOT PRO to be a connected part of your laboratory infrastructure by taking inputs from any number of ancillary measuring systems and devices increasing efficiency and eliminating transposing errors.
AUTOMAX PRO is CONTROLS’ new top-of-the-range Smart-Line control consoles and is the first choice for automatic standard failure tests and advanced concrete mechanical properties assessment. A major development are the new cutting-edge connective technologies.
Three packages are available:
50-C10F02: AUTOMAX PRO SMART line, Automatic control console, for connection to two testing frames. PC not included. 230 V, 50-60 Hz, 1 ph
50-Q60P/PR: Upgrade of AUTOMAX PRO system to incorporate a serial graphic printer in the rear panel, allowing results (including a load/time plot) to be printed at the end of test.
50-SW/DM: Datamanager PC Software suitable for remote control of automatic compression machine (AUTOMAX only), data acquisition, processing and filing. Allows printout of customized test certificates. LAN cable included.
AUTOMAX PRO Smart-Line control console requires a suitable pressure transducer and connecting cable in order to operate a testing frame. Factory upgrade for a third and fourth frame connection and control (not simultaneously) available on request.
Compression and flexure machines retrofit
In many cases it may happen that the customer has already an old compression or flexural machine, with old pressure gauge and not more reliable readout unit. In these cases, rather than buying a new machine, it is enough to update the hydraulic system and the readout unit.
The control unit and the pump group fitted on CONTROLS machines in COMPACT LINE version are also available in STAND ALONE version (SMART-Line). This allows to retrofit existing anymake old frames or complete machines using a modern and sophisticated console that ensures high accuracy and reliability.
The modern and advanced automatic units are fitted with a hydraulic unit driven by a DC motor with variable speed controlled by a high resolution closed circuit microprocessor.
This solution allows the limitation of 'costly' waiting times between tests and controls the oil flow drop by drop so as to use precisely at the correct pressure only the necessary amount.
The use of cold oil and of a pump that does not heat up eliminates the need for a cooling fan whilst perfect mechanical coupling ensures silent operations.
