Shunt Calibration System

Jul 18, 2018

The Epsilon Shunt Calibration System is available for any strain-gaged extensometer.

The Epsilon Shunt Calibration System provides an easy way to calibrate an extensometer and signal conditioning electronics without using a mechanical calibrator. Shunt calibration enables performing on-site electrical calibration with nearly all types of controllers and electronics. It also makes it easy to periodically “spot check” the calibration of the electronics, which will help ensure that the extensometer and electronics are calibrated correctly.

Note that the Epsilon Shunt Calibration System does not replace the need for on-site verification using a mechanical extensometer calibrator. On-site verification is required by many labs and testing standards.
