SSG Series Strain Gauge Extensometers

Shimadzu’s SSG series of strain gauge extensometers are compliant with ISO, JIS, and ASTM tensile test standards, including those for plastics and metallic materials These lightweight, precision extensometers feature a wide elongation measurement range, while retaining the flexibility to measure using small gauge lengths, and support both rod and flat plate shaped specimens. Consisting of an elongation sensor and amplifier, this extensometer is suitable for use with metals and hard plastic materials, and is fastened securely to specimens with screws. Calibration using an extensometer calibrator allows the extensometer to meet JIS and ISO Class 0.5 and ASTM Class C standards for higher accuracy.
