Familiar handheld controller that is tethered to the machine by an articulated arm. With its larger, tactile, sealed keypad, this controller is ideal for operators who use gloves to load and unload specimens and prefer a push-button keypad. The controller can be used for basic operation of the tester and can initiate a test, but must be used with Horizon software.
Two models of this tethered controller are available: one designed for the operation with ST series testers, and one designed for operation with SL series testers.
