Block Program

General purpose program providing machine control for block loading of a component or structure with stiffness measurements at regular intervals.

A block consists of several stages, each stage having different waveform, frequency, mean and amplitude, and any number of cycles.

Including the control channel, peak and trough values of up to 16 channels of signals, for example load, position and strain gauges or thermocouples, can be recorded and displayed during an endurance test.

Trips can be set on any number of channels.
