The AST-8800 control system features a Windows-based graphical user interface. The flat screen color monitor displays power spectral density, temperature, and vibration data. The controller allows the user to define how multiple accelerometers and thermocouples are used to control and monitor stresses delivered to the product. The controller can be configured to monitor run-time on wear items and automatically alert the operator when periodic maintenance is required. The System is Ethernet-compatible and web-enabled for virtual anytime/anywhere access. Thermotron’s extensive multi-level, password-based security system protects sensitive data and saves tamper-proof data.
