MODEL 3542 Axial Extensometers
General purpose extensometers for axial tensile, compression, and cyclic testing. Gauge lengths from 0.5 to 2 inches (and 10 to 80 mm) and measuring ranges from 5% to 100% strain.
MODEL 3542L Long Gauge Length Extensometers
Long gauge length extensometers with gauge lengths greater than 2 inches (50 mm) for tensile and compression testing. These units have been specially designed for long gage length applications where low level strain measurements are required.
MODEL 3442 Miniature Extensometers
Very small and rugged, yet ultra-light weight, these units are widely used for testing small and delicate samples. Ideal for many biomedical tests, as well as for wire and thin sheet materials. Also great for low cycle fatigue testing where short samples are used.
MODEL 3543 Long Gauge Length Extensometers
This model is available in gauge lengths from 2 inches (50 mm) and larger, with measuring ranges up to 4 inches (100 mm). It is a uniquely designed unit that may be left on through specimen failure. These Extensometers are widely used where long samples are required. They are ideal for testing steel re-bar, weld joints, and wire materials.
MODEL 3560 Bi-Axial or Axial Averaging Extensometers
A single integral unit provides simultaneous lateral (transverse) strain and averaged axial strain measurement. The unit is also available as an averaged Axial Extensometer alone.
MODEL 3800 Elongation Extensometers
Designed for plastics, rubber and elastomer testing, these extensometers have very long measuring ranges. Their unique design allows testing to failure and minimizes interaction with the sample.
