Extensometers for materials testing
USB Extensometer Interface – Model DSCUSB
The DSCUSB provides USB plug-and-play capability to any strain gauged extensometer. They are useful when you wish to acquire data directly to your computer without the need for a controller.
36 EXTENSOMETER MODELS are available in many thousands of variations. Our focus on helping customers has led to the development of models to cover nearly any test method.
Operation of these, and all of Epsilon’s extensometers, are
VERIFIED TO APPLICABLE STANDARDS SUCH AS ASTM E83 OR ISO 9513
using in-house calibration systems that are calibrated with Epsilon’s laser interferometer system.
WITH EPSILON’S 20+ YEAR HISTORY OF SERVICE
to the materials testing community, you know we will be there to stand behind our products when your critical application requires it.
Provides an inexpensive solution for digitally recording extensometer output.
The DSCUSB is a signal conditioner that provides a digital interface to a computer via USB. This allows direct data capture without the need for additional acquisition electronics or an input channel on your controller. Calibration of an extensometer is handled within the DSCUSB with up to 7 linearization points and output readings in the desired units (mV/V, mm, inches, strain). The simple software interface displays the current value as well as providing a trend chart and data logging capabilities.
If you wish to interface the DSCUSB with your existing software solution, the DSCUSB can be controlled using a set of ASCII commands through its virtual COM port.
A USB cable is included with the DSCUSB.
