A data recorder used for strength tests has to be capable of a quick response to specific changes of the tested parameters. Fatigue tests, in turn, involve a repeated application of the same load to the tested object, which requires long-term recording. With the large amount of integrated memory and the option of changing the length of the sampling period, MultiCon is suitable for both cases. Equipped with the counter inputs that receive the signal from the proximity sensors, the device can, for instance, monitor pushbutton tests. Pressure transmitter and MultiCon with an analog input slot create a useful assembly for pressure tests. In that case, MultiCon is also capable of routine data analysis to detect the moment when the yield stress of the tank is exceeded.
