Tinius Olsen’s VEM 200 series of video extensometer modules is designed to measure low levels of strain from 0.01% in tensile, compression, shear and flexural modes. The units are fully integrated with the testing machine and result-reporting software, supporting
multiple gauge length click-and-drag placements, strain rate control and real time results during and throughout the test.
The VEM 200-Series is directly compatible with all Tinius Olsen testing machine frames. It is mounted using a stabilised carbon fibre arm with built in X, Y and Z fine positioning adjustment for optimum measuring performance.
The unit can be mounted at the front or rear of a testing machine, left or right in support of operator comfort and efficiency of use. The extensometer on its mounting arm can be quickly moved away from the test area, allowing test specimens to be put into the test area and
specimen grip system. When the specimen is ready, the extensometer is equally quickly swung back into place, locating precisely using the magnetic homing position – simple, precise and quick.
