Pro Static Simple and Direct Shear System

The VJ Tech Pro Static Simple and Direct Shear System integrates high-precision stepper motors in both axes, with reinforced stainless-steel components to ensure high stiffness for minimal compliance, it has been designed to enable:

  • Static Simple Shear
  • Static Direct and Residual Shear
  • Constant Shear tests
  • Oedometer testing

Equipped with five analogue input channels, the VJ Tech Pro Static Simple and Direct Shear System, delivers exceptional accuracy in measuring load and displacement (on both axes), as well as Pore Water Pressure (optional). This comprehensive data acquisition capability is essential for detailed analysis and validation of soil behaviour under various stress conditions. The system is designed primarily to be used with our Clisp Studio software, which offers a user-friendly interface for test configuration, execution, and data acquisition and processing.

  • Supports Simple Shear, Residual shear, standard Direct Shear tests, as well as, advanced test types such as slow cyclic shear via our Clisp Studio Module (+/- 20mm travel from the mid-point of the sample).
  • Stepper motor for both axis allowing active control of Vertical and Horizontal movement.
  • Capable of performing Oedmoeter tests (requires additional components)
  • Compact tabletop design to minimise footprint
  • Multiple Units can be controlled from single PC via a LAN or Ethernet/USB hub
  • Built-in logger allowing high speed sensor data conversion (24 bit, up to 5000 samples/s)
  • Built-in live data tables and graphs for immediate analysis and real-time data visualization
  • Built-in auto protection for mechanical limits & sensor limits
  • Built-in auto engage and 16GB Internal SD card
  • Allows data export via USB for analysis in Excel directly from the machine
