Designed for general purpose transverse or diametral strain measurement on axially loaded specimens. This model may be used simultaneously with the Model 3542 axial extensometer.
Self-supporting on the test sample, these extensometers will work on any width or diameter specimen from 0 to 1 inch (25 mm). They are commonly used for measurement of Poisson’s ratio, for transverse measurements with anisotropic materials like many composites and for sheet metal testing such as r-value determination. Most often they are used simultaneously with Epsilon’s axial extensometers.
These units easily clip onto the sample and are held in place with an integral spring. Rounded contact edges maintain the position on the specimen. All are high accuracy strain gaged units, compatible with most test controllers.
The Model 3575 extensometers are strain gaged devices, making them compatible with any electronics designed for strain gaged transducers. Most often they are connected to a test machine controller. The signal conditioning electronics for the extensometer is typically included with the test machine controller or may often be added. In this case the extensometer is shipped with the proper connector and wiring to plug directly into the electronics. For systems lacking the required electronics, Epsilon can provide a variety of solutions, allowing the extensometer output to be connected to data acquisition boards, chart recorders or other equipment.
