Electro-mechanically operated Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester DynaQube

The range of Asphalt Mixture performance testers has been increased with the new DynaQube, based on the revolutionare EmS Electro-mechanical Servoactuated technology, suitable for QC/QA tests DynaQube grants a level of testing accuracy, quality, performance and range normally achievable only from complex and expensive machine only.DynaQube has been designed to allow every laboratory to perform in a fast and reliable way a range of tests including the three asphalt tests of NCHRP Projexts -19 and 9-29, AASHTO TP79 Dynamic Moduls, Flow Number and Flow Time with ease.In addition DynaQube can also perform Uniaxial Fatigue/SVECD, Overlay Test, Semi-Circular Bend, Indirect Tensile Dynamic Modulus, iRLPD, Small Diameter Dynamic Modulus, tests with the addition of optional hardware accessories.

Features

● Brand new technology including the revolutionary EmS actuator

● Silent and cool

● Interchangeable transducers and load cells with "plug and play" signal conditioners allowing quick and easy transition of test set-up.

● Easy-to-use and ergonomic testing system

● Clarity in results with the Integrated Multi Axis Control System (IMACS)

● Fully integrated and very compact in design, a perfect solution for both static and mobile testing facilities

● Optional air compressor that comes integrated in the machine

Introduction

The range of Asphalt Mixture performance testers has been increased with the new DynaQube, based on the revolutionare EmS Electro-mechanical Servoactuated technology, suitable for QC/QA tests DynaQube grants a level of testing accuracy, quality, performance and range normally achievable only from complex and expensive machine only.

DynaQube has been designed to allow every laboratory to perform in a fast and reliable way a range of tests including the three asphalt tests of NCHRP Projexts -19 and 9-29, AASHTO TP79 Dynamic Moduls, Flow Number and Flow Time with ease.

In addition DynaQube can also perform Uniaxial Fatigue/SVECD, Overlay Test, Semi-Circular Bend, Indirect Tensile Dynamic Modulus, iRLPD, Small Diameter Dynamic Modulus, tests with the addition of optional hardware accessories.

Standard outfit

AMPT Pro includes, as standard, the following testing Modules (compression platens) which, however, have to be completed with the transducer kit accessory.

Dynamic Modulus E to AASHTO TP79 and NCHRP 9-29

A performance.related property, for asphalt mixture evaluation and charachterising the stiffness of HMA. It is an important input parameter for AASHTO "mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide".

● Creates master curves for structural design

● Assess modified binders and local materials

● Forensisc analysis of pavement failure

Flow Number to AASHTO TPXX and NCHRC 9-29

Flow number is related t the resistance of HMA to permanent deformation.

● Repeated load creep tests

● Evatluate rutting

● Accurate simulation of actual loading

Flow time to NCHRP 9-29

Flow time is a quick and simple measurement of the resistence of HMA to permanent deformation.

● Static creep tests

● Measure permanent deformation for rutting evaluation

IMACS Digital Controller and Data Acquisition System

IPC Global's world leading IMACS digital controller and data acquisition system is at the heart of all our servo-controlled testing systems. It provides excellent waveform fidelity from integrated channel acquisition and control functions, at speeds of up to 5 kHz simultaneously on all channels.

The IMACS utilizes flash-based firmware which allows updates of all modules onsite. Analogue inputs auto-calibrate on power-up giving confidence in readings and a low data noise performance with over-sampled data.

With up to 8 expandable control axes and 32 data acquisition channels, you can have total confidence in your testing results. It has an exceptional data resolution and control with up to 20 bit effectiive auto-ranging data acquisition and a real-time digital computer control with 32 bit processing.

Three versions are available: for Servo-Hydraulic, Servo-Pneumatic and Servo-Electromechanical systems.

UTS Software

IPC Global's powerful and professional UTS Software draws upon over 30 years of advanced materials testing experience. IPC Global's test and control software is known for its simplicity in use, clarity of results and analytical power.

It was developed from expert knowledge of applications to run automated test routines and therefore speeds up testing. It is written in powerful, professional Delphi and features real-time graphs for monitoring the specimen under test; portable binary data files or sharing, reviewing and analysis; and "live" transducer levels display.

The purpose-built UTS applications have dialogue help boxes for automated test routines and easy-to-read graphic screens for test set up and reviewing. The test is totally programmable from the user.
