Standard features of the impact tester include an aerodynamic compound pendulum, selectable energy units, selectable strength calculations, break type input options of complete, hinge, partial, non-break and necking, automatic or manual toss correction, auto calibration for bearing windage and friction, automatic or manual update of the specimen number, and a real time display of energy for verifying display accuracy against traceable measurements of pendulum height and weight.
The aerodynamically designed compound pendulum is said to give this tester maximum rigidity in the direction of the impact and to virtually eliminate any windage losses.
