ProLine makroXtens

The ProLine makro extensometer is a high resolution extensometerfor tensile tests performed on metals, plastics, hardfoam materials, and materials with low to average specimenstrain.
208301

Application description

In contrast to makroXtens II, modular design in the ProLine makro extensometer is restricted.

Even in its basic configuration, the ProLine makro extensometer is a complete measuring system. It includes a sensor arm that is 300 mm long.

  • The following are optionally available:
  • extensometer with higher resolution
  • drive unit for motorized attachment and removal of the sensor arms.

Advantages and features

  • Deformation of the specimen is recorded in the elastic and plastic deformation range throughout the entire test until specimen break
  • Low drag force and the ability to adjust the contact force of the sensor arms as needed means you can test sensitive specimens reliably and with traceability
  • Very high resolution and measurement accuracy over the entire measurement range
  • Tiltable knife edges prevent damage to the sensor arms and knife edges at specimen break
  • The knife edge geometry can be adjusted easily and without tools by rotating the knife edges, allowing you to test flat as well as round specimens
  • Quick release fastener for sensor arms, enabling them to be replaced without the use of tools
  • Sensor arm clamping force can be adjusted steplessly
  • Centricity is automatically ensured by positioning in the test area
  • Accuracy class 1 to EN ISO 9513
