Features for Efficient Workflows
One Double Click to Test
Arrange frequently used methods on your desktop and simply double click on the required test method.
Automatic Data Export
Depending on your workflow needs, you can set up destinations for the test data: ASCII files, PDF reports, and Instron TrendTracker database.
Operator Inputs without Manual Data Entry
Barcode scanner inputs and specimen dimensions, such as thickness, width, and weight, can be captured directly from the measurement devices, eliminating manual data entry.
Set up your own logical criteria to automatically assign a PASS or FAIL test status. Acceptance range checking for multiple results can be done based on the part being tested.
Displays that Meet the Eye
Testing status, measurements, and key results are displayed on live, easy-to-read displays. Graphs of load and extension data can be set up with markers to indicate key points including yield, break, and multiple peaks. Quality control becomes easy when the key metrics are displayed on a control chart.

Right Report for the Right Audience
To accommodate a wide range of reporting needs, Bluehill LE incorporates several pre-defined report templates for output to a printer – or save the file directly as a PDF file format for easy sharing. Changing the placement of reporting elements, like charts and tables, does not involve any laborious fine adjustments and elements, such as the header and footer, can easily be setup with pre-populated choices. You have the ability to tie a specific report template to a given method ... suiting the specific requirements of your audience and automating the report generation.
