1. Main Navigation Buttons: Large buttons to access the main functions of the software. Hotkeys are assigned to the Start/Stop functions and other critical functions on the machine for quick keyboard control.
2. Information Inputs: Test report information -- item descriptions, customer information, and order information are automatically populated, selected from lists, or manually entered.
3. Test Settings: These settings control the load, hold time, # of cycles, proof load factor and end action during tests. Depending on the test type, the available options will be changed automatically.
4. Setting Controls: Test report, load cell, calibration, and initial setup settings are available to easily tailor the testing on the test bed to your needs and help trouble-shoot problems should they arise.
5. Speed Control: These settings control the overall speed of the test machine when testing. The test speed % setting controls how fast the machine will operate while loading. As the load approaches the set load, the closing speed % setting reduces the speed in order to precisely hit the target load.
6. Sensor Zero Controls: Sensor zero controls with hotkeys allows the operator to zero a load or elongation reading based on what their testing method describes. Zeroing before testing ensures accurate data recording.
7. Auto / Manual Select: Auto / manual selection and push and pull controls allow the user to let the software control the loading, or take control themselves for specialized testing.
8. Graph Options: Graph options allow different display modes such as: Force/Time, Elongation/Time, Force/Elongation, and others that prove useful for testing lifting gear. The operator can also change zoom level, color, graph style and line thickness.
9. Graph: Easy to read graph that auto scales to show the entire test. The graph appears on test reports.
10. Load / Time / Elongation Display: Dieplays the current and maximum load, elongation, and time. The units of measure are adjustable in the settings portion of the software.
11. Auto-Incrementing Serial Number: The serial number can be set in an identity, or auto-increment, or be set manually to provide both speed and flexibility when testing.
