LRXPlus Universal Materials Testing Machine

The LRXPlus universal testing system is ideal for materials testing applications up to 5 kN (1124 lbf). Suitable for both routine and complex test applications, the standard LRXPlus features a single column design with a crosshead travel range of 735 mm (29 in). Extended machine column options (LRXPlus-E models) for testing high elongation materials are also available.

This bench mounted machine is microprocessor controlled and incorporates world proven 32 bit technology for highly accurate load measurement and rapid data acquisition.

The LRXPlus features an integral control console with large, positive action membrane keys, allowing complex tests to be performed at the touch of a button. A back lit 4 line LCD display shows the test and set-up information in a wide choice of user selectable languages and units.

The stand alone system is capable of storing up to 600 test results from a choice of ten programmable test set-ups. Test  parameters are entered using the keypad in a sequential menu driven format.

For additional flexibility, the LRXPlus can also be connected to a personal computer with optional Lloyd Instruments NEXYGENPlus material test and control software. NEXYGEN software provides almost unlimited testing and results processing capability in a familiar Windows® environment.

A series of highly accurate, interchangeable load cells is available for tension, compression and cycling through zero force measurements. Our extensive range of grips and fixtures support virtually any type of test. The system is ideal for use in production, quality control, educational and research environments.
