OLDER Tinius Olsen testing machines can now be upgraded to provide much improved testing productivity as well as more convenient test reports.
Various upgrade packages are available from Power Parameters including the basic Model 602 retrofit system which involves the replacement of the original dial or older digital display with a dockable hand held display unit.
With the basic upgrade, the original hydraulic controls remain unaltered. In addition, a complete servo retrofit package is also available.
This provides test protocols such as strain rate control to yield, reversion to piston display control to break point as well as load hold tests.
The Tinius Olsen Windows-based Navigator software provides complete testing profile control, graphical and numerical reporting and can improve productivity significantly.
The basic upgrade in addition to providing digital load data, can also be expanded to operate with additional data channels (strain, position, encoders, etc).
