TRIAX 2015 Impact Tester

PlaygroundTester2The TRIAX 2015 system is the latest evolution of playground surface impact test systems fully compliant with American (ASTM F1292) European (EN1177) and many other (CSA, AUS) standards for the measurement of shock (G) and head injury criteria (HIC) values as would be experienced during an impact of a head on a surface system.  Since 1988, continuous engineering development combined with ongoing participation in worldwide standards development has resulted in a device that produces accurate and consistent measurement results in both field and laboratory use.

Accurate and repeatable measurements require accurate fall heights, which are provided by TRIAX 2015 tripod.  Using the standard set of legs fall heights of up to 12 feet can be accommodated, extending to 14 feet with an optional additional set of leg sections.

 A manually operated cable clamp allows the head form to be raised and locked at the desired height without the use of a ladder, or without climbing on structures, and can cover the entire use zone. This is important in testing areas around swings where the use zone extends far beyond the frame of the swing.

Snap together quick connect couplers for the tripod leg sections speed setup time allowing operators to get more work done in less time.

Headform-devoceTo further ensure accuracy and repeatability an electromagnet hold and release system prevents errors caused by operators manually dropping the head form, influencing the fall trajectory.  This ensures that sequential drops are from the same height and to the same point on the surface.

DataUnit2The TRIAX 2015 dedicated hand held data unit connects wirelessly to the head form and collects and stores up to 1000 drop tests on a standard memory card.  Use of a dedicated device provides data integrity and eliminates the need to download, install and configure apps.  In addition a dedicated hand held unit guarantees continued successful operation of the TRIAX 2015 system long after current crop of cellular phones and tablets have long since been discarded.

 The TRIAX 2015 system includes a PC application that speeds the creation and archiving of test reports, which show all impact test data along with a date / time stamp and user comments. The test results cannot be altered, particularly important to risk managers wanting to ensure data has not been tampered with should a legal action commence.

CalibratinCert2

The TRIAX 2015 is a sophisticated electronic measuring instrument. Like all electronic instruments, periodic factory calibration (at most once every two years) is required to ensure proper operation and compensate for variation inherent in all electronic devices. The TRIAX 2015 system has a full factory calibration program in place and operating now. As with a new system, recalibrated systems are supplied with a calibration certificate verifying that the calibration was completed as required, and should be supplied to users of testing services to prove compliance with standards.

To ensure proper operation between factory calibration the TRIAX 2015 system is supplied with a reference mat that has been tested at the factory. Before each use the operator performs a set of drops on the reference mat and confirms that the results match those obtained by the factory when the TRIAX 2015 system was freshly calibrated. If deviation beyond acceptable limits is observed this alerts the operator that the system needs attention and possible repair. The reference mat protocol prevents an operator from performing tests which would be inaccurate and a waste of time.

TRIAX 2015 Upgrades

An upgrade program is available to allow owners of TRIAX 2000 and TRIAX 2010 systems to upgrade to the advantages of the TRIAX 2015 system.  The existing tripod is re-manufactured to the TRIAX 2015 functionality, and the existing accelerometer is re-calibrated and installed in a wireless head form. An upgrade includes a fresh calibration certificate.  Note that the tripod legs are not upgraded.
