The Automatic Vicat Apparatus executes the test program using a fully automatic test cycle. The integral LCD display indicates test progress in real time. Firmware in the unit enables up to five user test profiles to be established. Integrated on-board memory will store up to 50 complete tests. On completion of the test the integral printer automatically prints all test data including a graph penetration with related data. As standard, the unit includes an RS232 serial port for connection to PC which, when used in conjunction with the supplied software, enables users to manage test data including graphing and report generation. The timed cycle of events is operator-selectable and penetrations can be selectable at intervals of 30 seconds, 1, 5, 15 or 30 minutes.
