Imetrum (Bristol, U.K.) will preview its new noncontact video system developed for high-volume test environments. The new UVX – Universal Video eXtensometer includes many of the features of Imetrum’s UVX-Flexi system, including the well-known Video Gauge software. The new system, however, has been simplified for routine, high-volume materials testing. The system is said to be well suited for production facilities and for test houses that provide third party client services for a variety of material types, sizes and specifications. Imetrum reports that the UVX-Flexi system is widely believed to be the only video extensometer capable of achieving the exacting requirements of ISO527-1: 2012, ASTM D638 equivalent. Demonstrations will be held on the Booth throughout the show and specialists will be on hand to answer any questions regarding this innovative new system.

Imetrum’s UVX system comprises a controller with Video Gauge software, one or more high-resolution digital video cameras and an appropriate lens for the application. Also included are a voltage output module for interfacing with traditional strain channels, lighting, a tripod and a rugged case for storage and transportation.
