Reliable Contact Strain Measurement with MTS Fundamental™ Automatic Extensometer (FAX)Obtaining repeatable and consistent strain measurement results is extremely important for tensile testing of specimens. Automated contact extensometers simplify testing routines while improving throughput to deliver more accurate test results.
The new high-resolution MTS Fundamental™ Automatic Extensometer (FAX) performs fast and highly accurate tensile testing on a wide range of materials such as plastics, metals, composites and rebar. Designed to automatically trace and measure specimen deformation, the extensometer can perform standard axial and transverse measurements. The FAX can help improve lab productivity with the rotating support mount that allows operators to easily and precisely position the extensometer. The swing away feature also allows easy access to the test space to quickly change grips and fixtures and then return to the original test position.
The FAX is fully integrated with MTS TestSuite™ TW Software for full testing integration into your test templates. It’s compatible with both the MTS Criterion® and Exceed® Electromechanical Test Systems.
