B265 SmartPulse | Electro-Mechanical Dynamic Testing System

( Asphalt )


SmartPulse is an electro-mechanical servo-controlled dynamic testing machine adopting a high-performance long-duration electro-mechanical actuator. It is engineered to deliver precise testing capabilities across tension, compression dynamic loading and is suited to testing a diverse range of materials such as asphalt, soil, and unbound granular material. This versatile functionality reduces the need for multiple testing machines, optimizing resource utilization.

SmartPulse boasts 18 kN capacity in dynamic load and 12 kN in static load. The machine is provided with a gearmotor, so it doesn’t require the need for an external compressor or pump. Unlike traditional hydraulic systems that consume large amounts of energy, SmartPulse’s electro-mechanical technology minimizes resource consumption without compromising accuracy.

Key to its design is the integrated climatic chamber with low-consumption thermoelectric conditioning ensuring uniform temperature distribution. The small window at the front is designed to allow access to the test space with minimal impact on the chamber temperature. Thanks to this feature, the machine keeps the temperature stable, reducing energy consumption. Users can easily monitor and adjust temperature settings via PC.

SmartPulse is complemented by Pavetest’s CDAS2 digital controller and TestLab software, offering comprehensive integration for seamless operation and precise data analysis.

B265-01: SmartPulse is also available with a refrigeration unit having an extended temperature range from -10°C to +60°C (with inbuilt water cooling system).
