The 3540 series is suitable for measuring deflection in three and four point bend tests, compression tests and other general purpose deformations. The unit is integrated with a strain gage device, and a magnetic base clamps the unit in position. The device is designed with a strain gage bridge, which offers compatibility with many different testing machine controllers.
The deflection gage functions through the use of a single arm and a fixed spherical contact tip. The product’s magnetic base can be mounted on a flat surface of the testing machine. After that, the tip may be positioned to measure the deformation during the test.
