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).

Furnace Extensometer has high-temperature, hot mountable design.

October 14, 2013

Suited for use on any load testing system, Model 3549 is available for use to 1,600°C and mounts on included slide bracket. Gauge length is automatically set prior to mounting on test specimen, which allows for hot mounting after thermal equilibrium has been reached. User can set contact force against test specimen, allowing even and repeatable contact force while also limiting contact force induced errors. Design reduces influence from nominal external vibrations. Read More
