Measure elongation without contact.

A new video extensometer for measuring elongation of plastic materials does not contact the specimen, so it cannot influence the results. The advanced video extensometer (AVE) from Instron, Canton, Mass., has no moving parts, eliminating risk of mechanical wear and loss of accuracy. Its high-resolution digital camera and real-time processor generate axial and transverse strain measurements with three fields of view. It relies on color contrast, making it resistant to ambient lighting effects. Tel: (800) 564-8378 * PT Direct: 772WV
