Tinius Olsen's Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine – Model 1500SL, 2000SL, and 3000SL

Familiar handheld interface that is tethered to the machine. With its larger, tactile, sealed keypad, this interface is ideal for operators who use gloves to load and unload specimens and prefer a push button keypad. It requires virtual machine control software running on a connected PC to operate the basic machine functions and report basic numerical test data.
Wireless handheld interface that is connected to the machine by a Bluetooth link. The interface features an Android-based operating platform and can be used to control the machine by itself or in conjunction with Tinius Olsen’s Horizon software
