This computer-assisted data acquisition and machine control system can be supplied with most Tinius Olsen testing equipment. The Horizon software package allows data to be collected, analyzed, graphed (where appropriate), and stored. If the testing machine allows, it can also provide control over testing operations.

 

Horizon has a comprehensive selection of pre-defined testing programs, which includes powerful analysis of testing data, complex control, and sophisticated reporting. These programs can be modified and further enhanced to fit a customer’s particular requirements. The testing data collected by these programs may be exported to an outside source then later transferred to other data analysis systems. The Horizon databases may also be configured to be shared across several computers on a company’s network, thereby allowing the testing programs and testing data to be utilized by multiple systems.

 

Using Horizon will make easy work of materials testing, whether it’s designed for the demanding rigors of R&D or the charting and analysis functions of QC testing.

Test & Recall

The testing area allows for the viewing of live data from the machine while the test is being performed. Multiple tabs showcase the recalling of previous testing data as well as each testing machine connected to the software. Once a testing tab is created, it never has to be destroyed. When a new testing program needs to be run, simply change the tab options and load a new program. Each testing tab can be configured to display custom results, multiple graphs, multiple plots on a single graph, and live data (including custom formulas). Each tab may be customized to suite a user’s preferences.

 

Custom Results

Methods transferred from the Library contain a number of results that have been standardized. In the Result Editor, however, custom results can be created. Such results might be defined as entry type, a single point along a curve, a calculation between two points along a curve, a live source, or even a calculated formula. Depending upon how the result is created, it can be added to a testing panel to be viewed during the test or added to a report.

 

Help Desk

Access to tutorials that guide a user in various software activities. Displays details of the software key including items purchased. System information displays valuable data regarding the software as well as the computer on which it is installed. This assists Tinius Olsen support staff when there are questions regarding system functionality. This page also offers quick access to the Horizon QS program, which allows Tinius Olsen support staff to take control of the computer when assistance is requested.

 

Webcam Functionality

In response to user requests and recommendations, a new feature has been added to Horizon that provides the ability to video record a tension, peel, compression, shear or bend test on Tinius Olsen ST, SL or L series materials testing machines, store the video as part of the test output package and replay it synchronized with the 2D graph output. To support analysis, the operator can move a cursor over the test graph and see the video change frame by frame, precisely corresponding with the cursor position on the graph.
