Automatic Recording Vicat Apparatus




General Description


The apparatus consists essentially of a mechanism of four different stepper motors, which control the sliding weight with needle, the rotation and displacement of the table and the chart drum.

The displacement of the sliding weight with needle is recorded by a pen in the chart drum and also read by an encoder for the data acquisition.

The automation of the system is obtained by an electronic control chard with microprocessor. The front control panel includes the membrane keyboard with large graphic display.
