A small-footprint, triaxial-specific load frame that provides the versatility, precision and durability found throughout Humboldt’s Elite Series load frames.
The HM-5020 Triaxial Loader has been specifically designed to handle triaxial testing applications, including UU, CU and CD triaxial and UC. From educational institutions and consulting firms to high-volume commercial labs and construction projects, the Triaxial Loader can handle any application with ease. Its heavy-duty design and precise stepper-motor control provide a stable platform for years of reliable service allowing the HM-5020 to perform any tests required up to its load capacity of 3000 lbf (15kN).
Like all Elite Series load frames, the HM-5020 is built around Humboldt‘s integral, 4-channel data logger with touch-screen control, which allows the load frame to be used as a standalone device capable of full test control and data logging. It can also be controlled by a networked computer at any location with access to the network.It provide four (4) integral and independent data acquisition channels, which can be utilized in stand-alone configurations or accessed through a LAN-networked computer using Humboldt’s Next Software. Elite Series load frames are built with durable, high-quality components and feature the use of a stepper motor, precision gears and gear box to ensure smooth and reliable operation, as well as precise results.
In stand-alone mode, these load frames provide a 7″ (178mm) touch-screen controller. These new waterproof, touch screens provide colorful, at-a-glance monitoring of testing functions without the use of a computer. Operators can see all the data in several formats at the machine while the test is running. Data can then be downloaded later to a computer in the lab, in the next room or at a different location, while also providing report generation capabilities from within Humboldt’s NEXT software or our enhanced test-specific modules.
Humboldt’s touch-screen controller provides you with full, graphical monitoring of all testing functions in a stand-alone application, while maintaining full computer control when desired.
Now you can have full, finger-tip control and monitoring of all testing functions with Humboldt’s touch-screen controller, found on Humboldt’s Elite Series Load Frames. This seven-inch, waterproof screen provides at-a-glance monitoring of testing functions, in a real-time graphical display, without the use of a computer, building upon Humboldt‘s dedication to modular, stand-alone data acquisition.
Now, in a stand-alone application, you will be able to run tests and display results while viewing tabulation, basic x-y graphs, and instrument readings in real-time during the test, using user-defined, basic data acquisition. Test data is stored in the device and can be downloaded to a USB drive via the machine’s FRONT USB port or the data can be transferred to a computer via the LAN port.
A second USB port located on the back of the machine can also be used to power a wireless access point, which can provide a wireless hook-up with a computer, if no LAN is available.
Touch-Screen Controller provides:
Humboldt‘s Next software is included with the
all Elite Series Load Frames. This software provides robust machine control, data acquisition and report generation for those using a computer to control testing operations. In addition, operators have the ability to view and control testing operations from a PC in the lab, in the next room or at a different location, while also providing report generating capabilities using NEXT software and the test-specific software modules.
So, whether you are controlling a single load frame, controlling multiple machines or even a complete geotechnical lab, Humboldt‘s NEXT software, in conjunction with Humboldt‘s Elite Series Load Frames provide a complete solution for acquisition, recording and presentation of testing data in data tabulation and graphic chart formats.
