The GEN0550 Automatic Pressure System is used to apply lateral pressure in the Hoek Cell during the triaxial testing of rock specimens.

The power pack is equipped with a proportional valve to provide a sensitive control of the loading rate and to maintain a constant confining pressure to within 0.1 bar. Pressure is controlled by using the PID closed loop controlled electronics. The user can define the set lateral pressure and display the lateral pressure through the BC100 control and readout unit.

BC100 TFT unit is designed to control the power pack and processing of data from pressure transducers which is fitted to the power pack.

All the operations of BC100 are controlled from the front panel consisting of a 800x480 pixel 65535 color resistive touch screen display and function keys 4 analogue channels are provided for loadcells, pressure transducers or displacement transducers.

BC100 has easy to use menu options. It displays all menu option listings simultaneously, allowing the operator to access the required option in a seemless manner to activate the option or enter a numeric value to set the test parameters. Its specimen setting sub-menu lists different specimen types including but not limited to cube, cylinder, block, beam, beam double upper bearers, cube splitting tensile, cylinder splitting tensile, paving block splitting tensile and kerb flexure. The BC100 digital graphic display is able to draw real-time "Load vs. Time" or "Stress vs. Time" graphics.

BC100 unit offers many addition unique features. You can save more than 10000 test results in its internal memory. Storage capacity can be increased up to 32 GB using SD memory cards or USB disk-drives. BC100 unit has support for various off-the-shelf USB printers, supporting both inkjet and laser printers. BC100 unit is equipped with a built-in internal camera which can save real-time video during testing for security purposes. Thanks to its built-in internet protocol suite, every aspect of BC100 device can be controlled remotely from anywhere around the world. Last but not the least, BC100 has support for Android tablets permitting to control and monitor your testing equipment remotely.
