Humboldt offers several excellent controllers for use with our concrete compression machines allowing you to choose the controller that best fits your application.

Manual Controllers
Humboldt also offers the HCM-5090, a digital indicator for use with manually-operated machines. This controller features many of the features of our automatic controllers except that it is designed for use with a manually-operated pump. The HCM-5090 incorporates the same standard test setups as the automatic controllers. Just pick the test you want to run as you configure your test and the controller will guide you through setup from where you can proceed with your test.

Humboldt’s HCM-5090 Controller features a 7" high-resolution, color, touch-screen, which provides accurate, precision machine operation. And, featurea two channel inputs for load, which allow for the control of two separate compression frames and two additional channel inputs for displacement, which allow for extensometer and compressometer testing

For the budget-minded operation, we also offer the i7 indicator, which is an easy-to-use digital load indicator that simultaneously displays both live load and rate of load values during a test.
