From polymers to ceramics, and from biomaterials to plastics, extensometers are used to determine crucial strength characteristics in modern materials. Incorporating Shimadzu s Digital Strain Processing Engine to improve the capturing and processing of sensor results, the SIE-560 Series employs magnetic-induction linear sensors, as well as strain-gauge sensors (560S only) to deliver results with better information and a higher level of repeatability. The SIE-560 series uses Shimadzu's Digital Strain Processing Engine, a high-speed CPU that measures sensor outputs at high resolution, and then rapidly process the large volumes of data. Real-time digital calibration of the engine allows highly repeatable data output that itself contributes to greater accuracy. Both models also offer a comprehensive range of automated functions, including automatic gauge-mark detection, automatic return and mounting, and automatic extensometer dismounting.
