Motorised Automatic Consolidation (ACONS2) System Setup


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

Our new ACONS2 System makes things easier for automated Consolidation testing by using a stepper motor to generate Force.

It also comes with an RS232 or USB Interface for computer control using our renowned Clisp Studio software, and an optional 7" Touchscreen Colour Display with Wi-Fi or USB Connection for remote control.

The ACONS2 is factory calibrated before delivery and the settings can be read into Clisp Studio before initial use. Details of any subsequent re-calibration can be written back to the ACONS2 for re-use.

The Clisp Studio software conforms to BS1377-5, ASTM D4235-04, AS1289.6.6.1 & XP PG4-090-1
