Hylec’s Measuring Station is designed to measure the dimensions of concrete samples 100mm x 200mm long in accordance with the AS/NZ Standards AS1012-8.
The Measuring Station has many features including:
- 3 through-beam edge detecting optical measuring systems
- A separate display unit with 4 digital displays in mm, two for diameter at right angles, one for height and one for mass.
- An RS232 or RS485 signal is provided for transmission of ASCII data in mm to a PC.
- Robust, to suit the concrete laboratory environment
The edge measuring system includes a laser transmitter and CCD receiver, is
totally digital and measurement is independent of temperature, surface texture,
colour of sample or dirt on lenses. Edge Measurement minimises errors due to
craters in the sample surface.
Fitted with a weigh feature; eliminates need for a platform scale, and allows all 3 dimensions and weight to be transmitted via one data stream. Dimensions are indicated and transmitted to a PC or LIMS in mm.
