Operating Principle

The ToniSET Expert is operated by an external PC system (WINDOWS®) using the software VicatDB. Tests are prepared, controlled and evaluated by this software. After the onetime definition of the test parameters tests can be started directly after the input of an identification and the preparation of the specimen. Subsequently the instrument performs the test fully automatic and stores the measured values in a data base. During the test procedure all measured values as well as the actual setting progress can be read out at any time.

A selectable quick measurement mode allows shortest penetration sequences if required.

After the end of the test the evaluation can be done either automatically by the software or manually by the operator.
