High-precision Video Extensometer

Product Announcement from Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, Inc.

High-precision Video Extensometer-Image

The TRViewX is available in single- and double-camera models with seven different models available based on the camera's field of view. The single-camera TRViewX has camera field of views ranging from 55 mm to 800 mm. The double-camera TRViewX comes with 120 mm and 500 mm cameras or 120 mm and 800 mm cameras. When using a double-camera model, the system can switch automatically between both cameras.

It features high-accuracy measurements with an absolute accuracy of ±1.5 µm and relative accuracy ±0.5 %. In addition, the TRViewX offers video and still image report functionality, enabling playback to be synchronized with the S-S curve.

In the plastics industry, elongation accuracy is required for elastic modulus measurement during initial testing. Fracture elongation also may be necessary for large elongation samples. For users in plastics research and development, the double-camera model offers precise elongation measurements at JIS 0.5 level or JIS 1 level when using a thermostatic chamber. Users employ the TRViewX's small camera for initial testing, while the second camera measures the large elongation sample.

TRViewX operates easily with TRAPEXIUMX software. Users simply select testing conditions to automatically set the measurement mode. The software synchronizes to the beginning and end of testing, and makes it possible to measure the actual gauge length when testing starts.
