The EXTEND Package
Does your application require accurate data and precise control?
The 59 Series control electronics offer unsurpassed responsiveness. An integrated 5900 control platform provides high-speed data acquisition for load, extension, and 3 optional input channels. Standard features include a single range measurement system, Ethernet communications, and automatic calibration and recognition of transducers.
Shouldn't software be powerful, yet simple to use?
Instron materials testing software packages offer operators and system administrators the best user experience through pre-built test templates and methods, as well as configurable calculations and test control. These are designed to provide your lab with the confidence needed to comply with the latest industry testing standards.
Does your lab value testing efficiency?
Optional 5900 Productivity Panel for servo-controlled systems provides multiple function keys and displays that allow the operator to interact with the testing system before, during, and after the test without returning to the computer workstation.
Would you like to save on energy costs?
Instron's optional V-Series variable pressure pumping system supplies pressure on demand. During the test, the pump output increases as the testing load is increased. Between tests, the system remains at a low idle pressure. The V-Series also provides operating pressure for most hydraulic grips.
