The 7675 High Temperature Transverse Extensometer from Epsilon is designed for transverse or diametral strain measurement in environmental chambers where the whole extensometer has to be exposed to high temperatures. These capacitive extensometers may be used up to 700 °C (1300 °F) without any cooling.
Epsilon extensometers are compatible with almost every brand of test equipment, and can be supplied with the right connector to plug in directly, or supplied with a separate amplifier and conditioner.
Epsilon offers 36 Extensometer Models in thousands of variations and their focus on helping customers has led to the development of models to cover virtually any test method.
Epsilon has 20+ years history of service for the materials testing community and will be there to stand behind their products when the user’s critical application requires it.
The 7675 High Temperature Transverse Extensometer uses a high-temperature capacitive sensor and does not require any cooling. It will operate up to the highest temperature limit of most environmental chambers used in materials testing.
The Model 7675 is ideal for the determination of Poisson’s ratio, and for characterizing anisotropic materials such as composites. All units can handle both positive and negative displacements. These extensometers are compatible with a number of Model 7642 high-temperature axial extensometers.
The 7675 extensometer is provided with the advanced DT6229 controller. The standard output is 0 - 10VDC analog signal, factory calibrated with the extensometer. This system provides a number of functional enhancements, including high speed digital output, analog and digital filters, integrated calibration and tare functions, and more.
The key features of the 7675 High Temperature Transverse Extensometer are as follows:
- May be left on through specimen failure
