Video Extensometer performs non-contact strain measurement.

December 22, 2014

Able to adapt to normal fluctuations of environmental conditions in lab and compatible with testing machines that uses ±10 V analog input, AVE 2 measures both modulus and strain to failure for diverse materials. Fully integrated device, which utilizes real-time 490 Hz data rate while achieving 1 micron accuracy, reduces errors from thermal and lighting variations common in most labs and can be used for strain measurement with Digital Image Correlation (DIC).

Electromagnetic Flow Meters contain no moving parts.

December 19, 2014

Designed for use with conductive liquids in 1–12 in. pipe, FMG980 Series has no moving parts, making it suitable for use in dirty applications where debris would foul mechanical meter. CE-compliant insertion flow meters are also suitable for difficult applications with changing viscosities and pulsating flows, such as air-driven diaphragm pumps. Choice of materials, including stainless steel, brass, and PVC allows meters to adapt to range of temperature, pressure, and corrosive environments. Read More

Pressure Sensors target direct and oil-filled sensing systems.

December 19, 2014

Exceeding AEC-Q100 automotive requirements, Models MLX90815 and MLX90816 are discrete MEMS devices for measuring absolute pressure in demanding operational environments. Model MLX90815 determines pressures from 0–30 bar absolute, while Model MLX90816 covers full scale pressures ranging from 30–50 bar absolute. Typical sensitivity is 1.5 mV/V/bar for MLX90815 and 0.5 mV/V/bar for MLX90816. Operating from -40 to +150°C, both have maximum deviation in linearity of just 0.2% FS. Read More
