1 NEXYGEN FM software is an extremely easy to use materials testing software package designed to integratedirectly with LLOYD instruments and CHATILLON LFPlustesting machines. NEXYGEN FMData Analysis and Applications Software for the LFPlusUniversal TestingSystemsSPECIFICATIONSS-FM-1602-11 01 November and CHATILLON are registered trademarks of AMETEK, IncLLOYD instruments , NEXYGEN and ONDIO are trademarks of AMETEK, 2001, by AMETEK, software is intuitive and allows the user to collect andanalyse load and extension data from a common set ofpre-configured test setups. It features seamless OLE2integration with Microsoft Word and Excel , enabling theuser to create detailed and comprehensive reports usingcommon and familiar packages. Developed with the userin mind, NEXYGEN FM software is ideal for even the mostinexperienced operator, minimising training and allowingyou to get up and running easily and quickly!Simplified Test SetupTest setup screens enable the user to specify and selectattributes for a particular test, supported by a series ofintelligent prompts, combo boxes, pull down menus andother help functions.
2 By selecting either a tensile, compression or cycling test,the configurator screen (see screen c) automaticallypresents the user with configurable parameters relevant tothat test only, thereby eliminating possible completed this simple procedure, the test the same type of test is required for many samples, a'template feature' can also be used to simplify the creationof new test files, thereby speeding up testing control consoleThe console is situated on the test results screen andserves as an interface to the desired test instrument. Theuser can control the test machine operations remotely fromthe computer and collect and analyse Presentation of ResultsNEXYGEN FM presents results in a graphical and tabularformat shown together on the same screen for easierviewing and analysis (see screen b). A double-click on any line in a batch of results will displaythe associated graph. Results can be colour coded for immediate features: A graph can be specified with userdefined or default axes, stress/strain curves and themodulus can be displayed.
3 By overlaying one test withanother, graphical comparisons can also be made. Notes can be added to the batch table to highlight software supports mathematical calculations includingcommon statistical operandsAn Auto-Save function ensures results are automaticallysaved after each test.
