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 HCM-5080’s high-resolution, 7-inch, color, touchscreen provides accurate, precision frame operation, setup and calibration. Test setup is simple, just choose the ASTM standard you wish to use and the controller will quickly walk you through the setup procedure. Calibration is also easy with the HCM-5080, allowing you to use from 1 to 10 points to calibrate the machine in any increment you choose. It also provides an accurate motor-control knob, which let’s you dial in precise loads for calibration.
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.
The HCM-5080 also provides data acquisition capabilities of up to 1000 tests with 3000 points per test. This information can be exported via the front USB port and a flash drive.
