E3542 Axial Extensometer


Model # E3542
Separating Force Typically 30 gf (0.066 lbf)
Gage Length 10 mm to 50 mm (0.39 in. to 2.0 in.)
Temperature Rating -40°C to 100°C (-40°F to 212°F)

General purpose extensometers for axial tensile, compression, and cyclic testing. Gage lengths from 0.5 - 2 inches (and 10 - 50 mm) and measuring ranges from 5% to 100% strain. Optional temperature range of these units is up to -265C to 175C (-450F to 350F). Dual flexure design makes extremely rugged and insensitive vibrations, permitting higher frequency operation. Note: Optional connectors available to match your test machine.

Features & Benefits

  • Test a wide range of materials, including metals, plastics, composites and ceramics.
  • All models work in both tension and compression, and can be used for cyclic testing.
  • Full bridge, 350 ohm strain gaged design for compatibility with nearly any test system.
  • The quick attach kit can be removed, allowing mounting of the extensometer with springs or rubber bands.
  • All standard units meet existing ASTM class B-1 and ISO 9513, class 0,5 requirements for accuracy.
  • High and low temperature options extend operation from as low as -265 C (-450 F) to + 175 C (350 F).
