Plate Bearing Tester AX®01

Plate load test according to DIN 18134

Plate Bearing Test

Plate load test in accordance with DIN 18134

The electronic plate bearing tester AX®01 allows to determine the bearing capacity and the deformability of soils very easily. By applying and releasing the load on the soil repetitively the load-settlement curve as well as the strain moduli Ev1 and Ev2 and the modulus of subgrade reaction are determined – according to DIN 18134 :2012-04 . With its waterproofed case, outside lying buttons and an illuminated display the electronic device can also be used under bad environmental circumstances. Test certificates can already be printed at the building site. The results of the inspection can be saved on an SD-card for further treatment on the PC.
