Vector U70

Vector U70 sits within our non-contact extensometer range. This model is suitable for testing small to medium specimens, with a gauge length range of 10-50 mm and widths larger than 2 mm.

With intuitive features, the impact of operator influence on measurement outcomes is removed resulting in repeatability and unparalleled accuracy. With a working distance of 280 to 320mm the U70 delivers uniaxial strain measurement over a wide range of materials, gauge lengths and set-ups that all meet or exceed ISO 9513 Class 0.5 and ASTM E83 Class B-1.

Vector’s lightweight operation and convenient integration makes Vector an advancement to any material testing laboratory.

Expanding measurement capability

Having adopted and been impressed with the Vector U200 when it first launched, we were keen to explore the possibilities U70 offered with smaller gauge length, sub-sized or compression specimens, it did not disappoint.
