ELE International has launched a new automatic control unit for concrete and cement testing, the ADR Touch Control Pro, which is now available on new compression machines, as well as to upgrade existing equipment.
The launch of the ADR Touch Control Pro system marks the “most significant product launch that ELE has made in over a decade,” said ELE Managing Director, Tony Power.
The new system includes LAN connectivity for remote control via ELE’s PC-based ELE Logger app. This allows staff to initiate and monitor testing while away from the laboratory, as well as allowing service staff to conduct remote diagnostics.
“The key drivers in the development process were the requirements to make testing easier, even more reliable and transparent,” explained Product Manager Adeel Hassan.
“All of the most common Standard tests are built into the machine and users are guided intuitively through the testing process,” Hassan continued. Automatic sample loading is provided by a closed-loop microprocessor controlled system, with automatic stress calculation. All test results are logged with the machine serial number, and load vs. time is plotted in real time.
As a result, “labs will be able to clearly demonstrate full compliance with the testing standard,” added Hassan. “This level of traceability is vital in any modern laboratory.”
The ADR Touch Control Pro includes a seven-inch, high-resolution, colour touchscreen, mounted on a flexible head that can be rotated by 75° and tilted to 45°. The screen display language is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French, while users are able to preset ‘favourites’ for faster set up.
“As a result of these enhancements, concrete and cement testing will be easier than ever before, and ELE’s inbuilt product quality combined with test automation will remove the potential for human error and any inconsistencies between operators,” concluded Hassan.
