ROD Optical Extensometer
The ROD is an optical extensometer optimized for tensile testing of reinforcing steel. Because ROD is designed for harsh industrial environments, it is equipped with dust-proof casing and glass-protected dual cameras.
The unique ITT functionality of the Alpha software allows for measuring specimens with an oxide or rust layer falling off during testing. This feature gives ROD a significant advantage compared with standard optical extensometers, which are, under such conditions, almost unusable.
