REL Product Spotlight: High-Speed Line Scan Optical Extensometer (C1-300k)

REL’s new C1-300k High-Speed Line Scan Optical Extensometer

The C1-300k brings high resolution non-contact strain measurement to the high strain rate test lab. Optical strain measurement increases Split Hopkinson Pressure Bar accuracy and reduces the required incident bar length. Direct impact testing can also be performed and recorded by eliminating the incident bar completely for a variety of materials.


  • 16k horizontal resolution (14 bit)
  • 300k maximum frame rate
  • A maximum of 4,840 frames/event
  • Cost effective alternative to 2D imaging
  • Capture strain rates up to 1200s-1
