Direct Residual Shear Machine, Analog, Dead Weight

The HM-5750A Direct Shear machine is an economical choice for performing direct/residual shear tests utilizing the dead-weight method and analog measuring devices. The microprocessor-based system features a stepper-motor drive system and a 7" touch-screen display that allows the operator to control and monitor all test functions.

Like all Elite Series machines, the HM-5750A is built around Humboldt's integral, 4-channel data logger with touch-screen control, which allows the HM-5750A to be used as a standalone device capable of full test control and data logging. It can also be controlled by a networked computer at any location with access to the network. The carriage accepts shear box squares up to 4.0" (100mm) internal dimension. Forward and reverse measurements permit residual shear testing as standard. A built-in safety feature prevents the overloading of the load measuring system.

Testing Control
The HM-5750A Dead-weight Direct Shear machine provides test control and live test monitoring in either a stand-alone or computer-controlled configuration. While weights must still be loaded manually, the rest of the operation can be directed from the touch-screen monitor or a networked computer.

Stand-Alone Test Monitoring
The touch-screen controller provides you with full, graphical monitoring of testing functions in a stand-alone application. The seven-inch, waterproof screen on these Direct Shear machines provides at-a-glance monitoring of testing functions, in a real-time graphical display, without the use of a computer, building upon Humboldt‘s dedication to modular, stand-alone data acquisition.
Now, in a stand-alone application, you will be able to run tests and display results while viewing tabulation, basic x-y graphs and instrument readings in real-time during the test, using user-defined, basic data acquisition. Test data is stored in the device and can be downloaded to a USB drive via the machine's FRONT USB port or the data can be transferred to a computer via the LAN port.

  • 3-channel data acquisition
  • Hi-res, 7", waterproof, touch-screen provides total control and real-time graphical display of tests
  • Machine/Test control and data acquisition via touch-screen

Computer Test Monitoring
Humboldt‘s NEXT Basic software can be downloaded from: for use with these Humboldt Direct Shear machines. This software provides basic data acquisition and report generation for those using a computer for this purpose. In addition, you can purchase Humboldt‘s HM-5700SW Direct Shear module for direct shear test-specific set up and monitoring of the testing function.

The HM-5750A is supplied complete with a 2,000 lbf (10kN) capacity load cell; 1" (25.4mm) horizontal strain transducer, and a 0.4" (10.2mm) vertical strain transducer. Shear box assemblies and related accessories are not included and should be ordered separately.

Counter-balance device for ASTM D3080 compliance is included. Not available anywhere else. Also available as a retrofit kit. HM-2560A.1
