There is consistent accuracy across the entire gage length in an incremental system. The clip-on extensometer's compact design is made possible by minimizing the size of the incremental scale. The lightweight measuring system is positioned very close to the specimen. Thus, the loading of the specimen is minimized.
The range of application of the digiClip clip-on extensometer is expanded even further by the number of different initial gage lengths available and through the flexible change in measurement travel that can be switched from "Tensile only" to "Tensile and compression" at extension.
