Armed with enhanced software drivers, a well-known series of universal testing machines reportedly allows users to develop complex testing sequences beyond the scope of standard software. Reconfi gured with new 32-bit LabView software, the 5800 series from Instron Corp, Norwood, Mass., offers faster setup and response, providing the best available combination of accuracy, resolution, and bandwidth for data acquisition, according to the company. Powerful test control features such as defi nable waveforms, auto-tuning, and amplitude control enable sophisticated users to meet unique testing requirements for new materials and applications. Users have the choice of two software suites-Bluehill for static and cyclic tests or FastTrack for complex sequence-loading applications. Load-frame capacities are from 500 to 600 N.
