Flexible Platform

VEM 300 Series

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.

Extensometer Information

This versatile extensometer platform delivers zero gauge length error every time, quick application of gauge marks including for the measurement of rotation to track specimen alignment during the test. Calibration is digitally and can be verified at any time using a standard traceable gauge block supplied.

Tinius Olsen’s VEM Video extensometer is the future of extensometery simply because it is straight forward to use be it in a research application or as an educational tool. Test reporting is strengthened by the strain embedded video record which along with the strain mapping option gives depth to material analysis and reports.
