Digital data collection for scb fracture energy loading tests

Meets Illinois IFIT (AASHTO TP 124) & LSU Semi-Circular Bend (SCB) Test Methods (*Load Frame Must Meet the Requirements of ASTM D 8225)

Know if your asphalt will meet the requirements of the latest cracking tests without the expense of replacing your current load frames. The InstroTek Smart-SCB makes it possible with a completely integrated SCB testing jig and analysis software.  

The Smart-SCB is designed to perform the latest SCB tests from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Louisiana State University or any other SCB tests that utilizes an SCB jig.

Don’t throw away your old load frame- Older load frames have low data capture rates and outdated mechanical systems that are no longer supported.  The Smart-SCB is a completely independent testing jig with the first integrated load cell, electronics and Bluetooth connectivity that makes capturing, reporting, and sharing data seamlessly. (*Please call InstroTek for Smart-Jig compatible load frames.)

Built for today & tomorrow's asphalt tests- The Smart-SCB uses integrated high-precision load cell and high-quality electronics to capture data at a super-fast 100 Hz.  The Smart-SCB is always ready and does not require any additional parts or accessories.  The included Android tablet is preloaded with the Smart-SCB software to plot, print and store data right from your device eliminating the need for manual calculation and potential operator mistakes.  Each unit is built to withstand the rugged construction industry environment and comes with a 1-year warranty.

The Smart-SCB is the perfect upgrade to extend the life of current analog load frame at a fraction of the cost.
