Maximize Non-contact Measurement with MTS Advantage™ Video Extensometer (AVX)Non-contact extensometry is the method of choice for applications where it is especially difficult to measure strain using conventional means. Non-contact extensometers work well with specimens that are thin or brittle, have irregular surfaces, require high-temperature or submerged environments, or tend to release a great deal of energy at failure.
The MTS Advantage Video Extensometer (AVX) delivers the speed, accuracy and flexibility test professionals need to perform more precise studies of failure mechanisms of rubbers, plastics, metals, composites and high-elongation materials. The extensometer recognizes patterns on surfaces to acquire measurement data, which is processed by the MTS TestSuiteTM TW Software to calculate specimen strain and modulus.
AVX provides higher accuracy and greater versatility with the capability to perform axial, traverse, orthogonal, rotational and dual-average measurement. The system also supports numerous setups, including multi-camera, multi-segment and multi-point strain, allowing test professionals to combine fields of view and perform more exacting studies of failure mechanisms and other complex events.
The AVX is available in five preconfigured packages, each tailored to a specific testing purpose: Rubber/Plastics; Metals; Composites; R&D; High-Elongation. An additional 2D Digital Image Correlation (DIC) upgrade is also available to create full-field color maps of strain and displacement.
