Tinius Olsen’s VEM 300 series Video extensometer is designed as a flexible platform allowing users to define their own extensometer performance using standard technology building blocks these being to measure low or high strain in tensile, compression, shear and flexural modes. The building blocks consist of camera and lens, lighting, machine frame mounting options and
data exchange options.
The VEM 300 series is directly compatible with all Tinius Olsen testing machine frames, single, twin and four column machines, camera staging options are available including a unit that allows for fine X, Y and Z camera positioning and adjustment for optimum measuring performance. The 300 series can be mounted at the front or rear of most testing machines or free standing on a tripod.
There are over 70 lens types to choose from in pursuit of a specific camera lens performance, be it data capture speed, field of view in which the event will occur, resolution and accuracy.
