Strain Measurement at Wood Specimens

A Laser Extensometer of the type P-100 is used for strain measurement at wood specimens. The system is integrated in the tensile tester and is started and stopped by the tensile tester automatically. A serial line is used to transfer the strain data.

The mounting of the extensometer allows a horizontal movement.
Thus the extensometer can be moved sidewards to change the specimen
and after that it can be moved back into the working position.
