Non-Contacting Video Extensometer
The AVE 2 advanced video extensometer is one of the fastest, most accurate non-contacting strain measurement devices commercially available. Utilizing patented measurement technology, this fully-integrated device easily adapts to the normal fluctuations of environmental conditions in your lab including thermal and lighting variations. The AVE 2 can be used on all types of materials ranging from low-strain metals and composites to high-elongation polymers and elastomers. In addition to ambient testing it can be used with temperature chambers and fluid baths. This device is designed for static and cyclic fatigue testing and meets a broad range of standards, including ISO 527-2, ASTM D638, ISO 6892-1, ASTM E8, and many more.

SAME RESULTS IN ANY LAB
Designed to Reduce Operator and Environmental Influences
Eliminates the effect of operators on your strain results; producing more consistent and repeatable results. Prevents premature damage to the specimen by measuring strain without touching for the most accurate results.
No two labs have the same lighting conditions, and lighting can change throughout the day, which can lead to different results. To ensure the AVE 2 always sees the same image, Instron uses a patented cross-polarized lighting system (US 7,047,819 B2, EP 1,424,547, B1) that’s able to produce repeatable results regardless of your lab’s lighting conditions.
Normal laboratory ventilation creates air flows which diffract light, introducing errors that can be as high as several microns. The AVE 2 uses patented CDAT fans (US 7,610,815 B2, and EP 1,424,547, B1) which create a constant air-flow between the specimen and the camera, producing consistent results even if your air conditioner turns on during a test.
One Device to Meet All Your Strain Measurement Needs
AVE 2 lets you measure modulus and strain properties to failure, including r&n results with the transverse option, at high, low, or ambient conditions on almost any material including plastics, metals, composites, textiles, films, elastomers, paper, components, and bio-materials.
