Specimen Size:

Up to 25 mm width or diameter

Measuring Ranges:

±1.2 mm to ±2.5 mm

These transverse extensometers use a high-temperature capacitive sensor and do not require any cooling. They will operate up to the maximum temperature limit of most environmental chambers used in materials testing. The Model 7675 is ideal for determination of Poisson’s ratio, and for characterization of anisotropic materials such as composites. All units can accommodate both positive and negative displacements. Model 7675 transverse extensometers are compatible with most Model 7642 high-temperature axial extensometers. The 7675 is supplied 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, built in calibration and tare functions, analog and digital filters, and more.
  • May be left on through specimen failure.

  • Self-supporting on specimen.
  • Improved accuracy, resolution, and noise rejection at high temperature.
  • Reduced size and weight, and improved high frequency performance.
  • All standard models are suitable for cyclic testing, >25 Hz is typical..
  • Digital controller and power supply included. Provides high level DC voltage output with low noise. Easily interfaced to test controllers, data acquisition boards, and chart recorders.
    • Includes high speed analog and digital outputs
    • Intuitive web-based user interface for setup, calibration, and data acquisition
    • Built-in calibration reference and auto-zero features
    • Multiple extensometer calibration files may be loaded for use with one controller
    • Multiple temperature-specific calibrations may be stored
    • Selectable analog and digital filter options from 2 Hz to 3 kHz
  • Ships fully calibrated with electronics (traceable to NPL (UK)) with user specified voltage output.
  • Mechanical over-travel protection.
  • Suitable for measuring Poisson’s ratio per ASTM E132 with most materials and specimens.
  • Durable stainless steel knife edges.
  • Includes high quality foam lined case.
  • Rugged, dual flexure design for strength and improved performance. The next-generation design enables cyclic testing at much higher frequencies.
