Digital deflection measuring system for suspended structures
58-C0239/A: Digital system for structural testing including:
- No. 3 aluminum telescopic supports (maximum extension 6.00 m)
- No. 3 displacement transducers, 50 mm stroke with carrying case
- No. 3 cables 12 m each
- DATALOG 8, 8 channels multipurpose data logger battery operated and with rigid carrying case. 5.7" Touch screen graphic colour display. PC software to be ordered separately (82-P9008/F)
The determination of deflection of ceilings, bridges or any suspended structure, can be easily performed using this modern digital system. This independent data acquisition unit, equipped with in-built rechargable battery, touch screen graphic display and removable USB pen drive, is ideal for testing application where the data must be verified as soon as they are acquired or in case of programmed medium and long term acquisition.
The testing set includes DATALOG 8, 8 channels multipurpose data logger with rigid carrying case suitable for use on field, 5.7" touch screen graphic colour display; three telescopic supports with 3 displacement transducers 50 mm stroke.
Additional transducers with telescopic supports and PC software can be ordered separately.
Mechanical strain gauges

Crack width microscope
58-C0218: Crack microscope 40x
A high quality microscope designed for measuring crack widths in concrete members, masonry walls and other structures.
The apparatus operates by an adjustable lamp unit and the image is focused by turning a knob. The eyepiece scale can be turned through 360° to align with the direction of the crack or pitch under examination.
The in-situ stress, deformability and resistance feature of masonry can be determined by the flat jack method. The test is performed by making a cut to a uniform depth into the mortar courses and inserting the flat jack or couple of jacks, which are pressurized to the desired level.
58-D0567/C2: Rectangular flat jack 400x200x4,5 mm, 50 bar max. working pressure.
58-D0567/C20: Rectangular flat jack 400x200x4,5 mm, less valves. 50 bar max. working pressure.
58-D0567/E2: Semioval flat jack 350x260x4,5 mm, 50 bar max. working pressure.
58-D0567/E20: Semioval flat jack 350x260x4,5 mm, less valves. 50 bar max. working pressure.
For stress determination a single flat jack has to be used.
For deformability and resistance determination two flat jacks have to be used.
The flat jacks have to be pressurized and the strain measured using the Analogue or Digital mode as follows:
For Analogue measurement the following accessories have to be used:
For Digital measurement the following accessories have to be used:
Deflectometers are used for determining the deflection of bridges, ceilings or any suspended structure.
