Bluehill Universal was built from the ground-up for touch interaction. The new portrait layout, with its meticulously crafted visual design, gives the most comprehensive view of the test workspace on a stunning, large-format Operator Dashboard. It transforms the look of your system, reduces footprint, and introduces a new, modern way to interact with your testing machine. Close proximity to the test system markedly improves ergonomics when using the optional frame-mounted dashboard support arm.
Bluehill Universal’s large touchpoints and intuitive gestures make the user experience simpler and smarter. Easy-to-understand icons and workflows simplify operator training making it easy to train new or experienced users, and allow you to start testing even faster.
Great new features such as QuickTest allow simple peak load tests to be run quickly and easily. Ideal for infrequent users, where the minimum of inputs are needed to complete a test.
