Our customer carries out stress tests on beams to determine the peak load pressure and the linear displacement reading at the point of failure. Texmate installed a Tiger 320 Series DI-50E meter configured to display and hold the peak readings, load pressure on Channel 1, and linear displacement on Channel 2.

The meter is configured to log data at a constant rate and download directly to a computer to calculate the rate of change

Beam Stress Test

APPLICATION VARIATIONS

  • Date, time, load peak pressure, and linear displacement downloaded directly to a printer, at a timed rate or from the front panel.
  • 16-bit analog output to a chart recorder (0-10 VDC or 0-20 mA).
  • Relay setpoints can be programmed for PASS/FAIL applications, preventing beam destruction.
