ACONS Pro Motorised Automatic Consolidation System


Part Number : VJT9105-P
For prices: call +44 (0)118 945 3737 or Email us

Our new ACONS Pro frame makes things easier for automated Consolidation by using a stepper motor to generate Force instead of compressed air. It is of compact design with a small footprint and features advanced electronics with up to 6 input channels (5 x Analogue & 1 x Digital). The same frame can also be used for CRS and Unconfined Compression testing when fitted with longer strain rods.
It features USB or Ethernet Interface for computer control using our renowned Clisp Studio software which conforms to BS1377-5 & 7, ASTM D2166 & D4235-04, AS1289.6.6.1 & XP PG4-090-1

The ACONS Pro has an Integrated 7" (178 mm) Touchscreen Colour Display which can be used for data entry when in standalone mode. Data is stored on an internal SD memory card for output to PC for manipulation within Excel.
