ELE International has launched a new automatic control unit for concrete and cement testing.
The ADR Touch Control Pro system is said to bring the latest technology into the materials testing laboratory, while combining a wide range of new features that has been developed specifically in response to feedback from ELE’s global network of customers.
“This is the most significant product launch that ELE has made in over a decade,” says Tony Power, ELE’s managing director.
“The advantages of the ADR Touch Control Pro are now available on new compression machines, and we are also able to offer the new system as an upgrade for existing ELE cement and concrete compression machines.” A key feature of the new machines is LAN connectivity for remote control via ELE’s PC-based App, known as ELE Logger. This means that laboratory staff will be able to initiate and monitor tests away from the lab, and service staff will be able to conduct remote diagnostics.
“The key drivers in the development process were the requirements to make testing easier, even more reliable and transparent,” says Adeel Hassan, product manager.
“All of the most common standard tests are built into the machine and users are guided intuitively through the testing process. The new high-resolution colour touch-screen is scratch and splash-proof and is located in a flexible head that can be rotated to 75º and tilted to 45º.
“As a result of these enhancements, concrete and cement testing will be easier than ever before, and ELE’s inbuilt product quality combined with test automation will remove the potential for human error and any inconsistencies between operators,” says Hassan.
