Robust design and the use of high quality materials guarantee an extended product life and reduce wear and tear of the TFP system.

The innovative control and data acquisition of the TFP from TAURUS Instruments features easy operation and intuitive user guidance. Operation at the measuring and control cabinet “TFP Control“ with integrated Single Board Computer, operating system Windows 10 and the TFP 2016 software is carried out via high resolution color touch display. Therefore the manual controls such as switches, controllers and buttons are no longer needed and the condition of the testing system is clearly displayed and critical operating errors are prevented by the system. With the control unit all test data is completely stored, analyzed and recorded.
