The Measuring Station has many features including:
3 through-beam edge detecting optical measuring systems
A separate display unit with 3 digital displays in mm error readings, width and depth, and one for height. There is a 4th digital display showing the mass, as this Station is fitted with a load cell
An RS232 signal is provided for transmission of ASCII data in mm to a PC via MODBUS system.
Robust, to suit the concrete laboratory environment
The edge measuring system includes a laser transmitter and CCD receiver, is totally digital and measurements are independent of temperature, surface texture, colour of sample or dirt on lenses.
Edge Measurement minimises errors due to craters in the sample surface
The station is supplied with a spacer jig for the 100mm samples. When not in use - the spacer is locked to the top of the station so as not to affect the weight readings of the 150mm cube samples
Fitted with weigh feature – eliminates need for a platform scale, and allows all 3 dimensions and weight to be transmitted via one data stream.
Dimensions transmitted in mm as an error value. Self-contained system – measurements can be made manually if PC not available
Manual dimension calibration facility to compensate for wear of mechanical parts
Reference cubes are provided, and button is used to calibrate the station.
Mechanical over travel stops for overload protection
Auto-tare feature for weight – zeroed reading when a sample is removed
Cal-Enable lock on display panel – this allows calibration in the field
The sample is mounted upside down on a hardened centre button and rests at an angle against several hardened side supports, to ensure correct positioning of the sample and ergonomic working location for the operator.
Height is thus measured at the bottom of the meniscus of the "rough end", while the width and height are measured at right angles to one another at the mid-height of the sample.
Hylec Controls | Test Equipment Suppliers and Intergrators
Hylec Control was first established in 1979 and initially started operation as a developer and manufacturer of analogue control systems. These were specially customised hydraulic applications, using servo valve technology. Hylec inarguably aclaims to be one of a few companies that have the knowledge and experience to service and repair most servo brands past and present.
Today, Hylec while still maintaining their core business in supply and service of quality servo valves also provides the latest equipment for the Test, Measurement, Construction, Building, Automotive & Aviation industries.
We welcome you to a snapshot of some of the latest technology available today.
