Elite Series, Automated Direct/Residual Shear Apparatus
Elite Series, Automated Direct/Residual Shear Apparatus
Supports the following standards: ASTM D3080, AASHTO T236, BS1377:7
The Humboldt HM-5760 Direct/residual shear apparatus, utilizes pneumatic loading to apply vertical loads to a soil sample— eliminating the need for loading weights used in dead weight-type systems.
The HM-5760 is a microprocessor-based machine featuring a stepper-motor drive system and a 7" touch-screen display that allows the operator to control and monitor all test functions. Like all Humboldt Elite series machines, the HM-5760 is built with durable, high-quality components and features the use of a stepper motor, precision gears and gear box to ensure smooth and reliable operation, as well as precise results. The HM-5760 is built around Humboldt’s integral, 4-channel data logger with touch-screen control, which allows the HM-5760 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.
In stand-alone mode, the HM-5760 direct shear machine provides a 7" (178mm) touch-screen controller, giving you finger-tip control of your testing processes, as well as providing real-time, visual views of your data in both tabular and graphic formats. The waterproof, touch screen provides colorful, at-a-glance monitoring of testing functions without the use of a computer. Operators can see all the data in several formats at the machine while the test is running. Data can then be viewed simultaneously or downloaded later to a computer in the lab, in the next room or at a different location, while also providing report generation capabilities from within Humboldt’s NEXT software or our enhanced HM-5700SW Direct Shear Reporting Software.
When operated from a networked computer the NEXT software provides robust machine and test control, and report generation. It also provides the ability to control and monitor multiple machines from a single computer.
The HM-5760 is supplied complete with (2) 2,000 lbf (10kN) capacity load cells; 1" (25.4mm) horizontal strain transducer, and a 0.4" (10.2mm) vertical strain transducer. Humboldt’s HM-5700SW NEXT Direct Shear software module is also included.
Shear box assemblies and related accessories are not included and should be ordered separately.
NEXT software and the enhanced Direct Shear module, HM-5700SW, is included with the HM-5760 pneumatic direct-shear machine. This software provides robust machine control, data acquisition and report generation for those using a computer to control consolidation testing operations.
In addition, operators have the ability to view and control testing operations from a PC in the lab, in the next room or at a different location, while also providing report generating capabilities using the consolidation test-specific software module.
So, whether you are controlling a single direct-shear machine, controlling multiple machines. or even a complete geotechnical lab, Humboldt‘s NEXT software, in conjunction with Humboldt‘s HM-5760 Direct-shear machine, provides a complete solution for acquisition, recording and presentation of direct-shear testing data in data tabulation and graphic chart formats.
- Machine control, and data acquisition via a networked computer
- Provides the ability to use Humboldt‘s Next Software's, advanced test-specific modules
- Real-time graphical chart and numerical display of tests via computer display
- Effective sampling rate of 50 readings per second
- Stores unlimited tests with up to 3000 points per test.
- Up to 255 individual tests can be run simultaneously from a single PC
- Provides advanced graphing capabilities
- Provides full-unit customization
- Reports can also be exported to Excel or a CSV file, if desired, and, we can provide custom integration/export solutions for LIMS, EQuIS, gINT, etc.
Counter-balance device for ASTM D3080 compliance is included. Not available anywhere else. Also available as a retrofit kit. HM-2560A.1
