The TA.XTplus Texture Analyser is extremely efficient, capable of high-speed testing and boasts a completely comprehensive software package.

Instrument specification

TA.XTplus Texture Analyser


Various design features (examples of which are highlighted below) enhance the functionality of the TA.XTplus.

TA.XTplus Texture Analyser

Totally Programmable Multi-stage Testing

Multi-stage test programming facilities so the user can define individual arm movement sequences at various speeds and distances. This unique control feature enables the most complex test protocols to be established. As a result, the Texture Analyser is no longer limited to fixed library tests. However, all the TA.XT2 tests are provided for your convenience and can be accessed with just a few mouse clicks.

Multichannel Data Acquisition

The ability to plug-in peripheral instruments has been incorporated into the design to provide multi-channel data acquisition. This allows for many other measuring devices to be used in conjunction with the TA.XTplus and their data simultaneously collected, such as temperature and humidity monitors.

TA.XTplus Texture Analyser

Maximum Speed

High speed testing up to 40mm/s can be reached using 5kg and 30kg load cells. This will be of interest when matching specific operational conditions or imitating real-life situations.

TA.XTplus Texture Analyser

Minimum Speed

The high resolution functionality from the established product range has been incorporated into the model as standard, allowing for a minimum speed of 0.01mm/s.

TA.XTplus Texture Analyser

Constant Strain and Strain Rate

Speed can alter in proportion to the instantaneous height of the sample so that products can be tested at a constant strain rate in compression or tension.

Flash Updates of Firmware via the PC

New firmware can be downloaded ('Flash Upgraded') to the TA.XTplus by a quick and simple software interface so that new features can be added to enhance the instrument capabilities.

TA.XTplus Texture Analyser


The TA.XTplus can be calibrated with any weight up to the load cell capacity installed in the Texture Analyser to provide optimum accuracy at the force range of specific interest to the user.  Options of Factory or 'User' Calibration are available.

Load Cell Auto Detection and Force Filtering

Load cell information such as capacity, calibration and serial numbers is stored within the load cell and automatically detected upon installation. This makes load cell changing much easier and quicker and prevents potential user errors.

The TA-XTplus uses a proprietary 32-bit software called Exponent. This has several advantages:
