Automated Direct/Residual Shear Testing System


The VJ Tech ShearSCAN 2 utilises the pneumatic loading concept for applying the vertical load to the sample when carrying out automated shear testing. The self-contained tabletop model eliminates the need for the numerous weights used in dead weight systems. The microprocessor based ShearSCAN 2 system incorporates a stepper motor drive, a large graphical display, a touch sensitive keypad and forward/reverse travel limit switches. Built in data acquisition automates the testing by setting the starting and stopping conditions. The ShearSCAN 2 is designed for harsh lab environments and is ruggedly constructed. The Clisp Studio csSHEAR software enables easy test setup and control with live tabular and graphical display of measured and calculated parameters and easy data export to standard packages. It conforms to BS1377-7, ASTM D3080-04 & AS1289.6.2.2. Select the 'Related Products' tab for details of this System setup.
