ADMET Introduces WinCOM Live LabVIEW-Based Program for Materials/Mechanical Testing

Enables real-time collection and viewing of force-extension data on a PC.

NORWOOD, Mass. - May 23, 2007 - ADMET Inc., a provider of integrated materials testing systems, today announced WinCOM Live, a LabVIEW-based program for real-time plotting of force-extension curves on a Microsoft Windows-based PC.

WinCOM Live features peak, average and slope/rate calculations, and has the ability to generate hardcopy printouts, store and recall test data, and export data to common spreadsheet programs for further data analysis. WinCOM Live is available for use with ADMET's Precise Digital and eP Digital Controllers which work with the full range of ADMET universal testing machines (UTMs).

"Our customers were asking for a lower cost Windows-based Materials Testing System that has the ability to view a real-time XY curve, perform basic calculations, store test data to disk and export to common spreadsheet programs. To fill that need, ADMET now offers WinCOM Live as an option with its standalone controllers," commented Richard Gedney, ADMET founder and president. "We also found that many test labs were comfortable modifying LabVIEW Virtual Instruments as a means of customizing testing software to meet their needs. Experienced programmers can also purchase WinCOM Live as a virtual instrument for customization."

WinCOM Live communicates with ADMET's digital controllers via an RS232 serial port. Future versions will have the ability to upload test procedures to/from the eP and Precise Digital Controllers. This will simplify testing for users when they need to quickly and frequently switch between multiple test procedures.

ADMET's optional WinCOM Live interface for its Precise Digital Controller and eP Digital Controller units includes a run-time license for the software. It is priced at $750 and is available immediately. Visit for more information. ADMET continues to offer the WinCOM Plus Data Communications and Plotting Program, as well as MTESTWindows, a PC-based, networkable materials testing system for local control, recording and reporting of tensile, compression and torsion tests.
