Model ITC-50-LTCI is a 50 Joule capacity low temperature computerized impact testing machine with capability to perform both Izod and Charpy tests.

The unit is computer controlled and uses ImpactStar Software.

The system can automatically calculate the test result, and has the function of storing 5000 history data records that can be read at any time.
