The Automated Oedometer System (GDSAOS) is a self-contained stepper motor driven unit that can be controlled either manually using its Smart Keypad or from a PC using the USB interface. There is no requirement for compressed air or manually placed weights. When used with the GDSLAB control and data acquisition software, the GDSAOS can be used for a complete array of tests beyond those which a hanging weight oedometer can perform.
The greatest benefit of the GDSAOS is the flexibility of the systems and the options available:
: GDSLAB with the Oedometer module –Automated testing (step loading) and data acquisition.
: External Displacement transducer – Increases the accuracy of strain measurements (generally required to comply with national standards).
: Several Constant Rate of Strain (CRS) Options.
: Further Advanced Testing Options including closed loop and displacement control & permeability testing.
