Mercury RT® opens new ways for deformation analysis - advanced functionality allows to fully explore strain and motion of measured specimens and components. Using offline post-processing tools, the user can re-evaluate tests without any additional costs to get what they need from an already finished testing. The system configurations are designed according to ISO 9513 and ASTM E83 and they can be certified by the DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 or other authorities.

The system can be connected to any testing machine and any sensor. Predefined configurations can measure samples from 1x5 mm, standard samples of 20 – 800 mm length / width, biaxial samples and large samples of a size from one to many meters. Integrated lighting makes the measurement simple and quick. The system hardware and software modularity allows to upgrade a single camera system to a dual camera system or a 3D system at any time.

Syncbox SC-07

Electronic unit for controlling vibration tests, fatigue tests and vibrographic measurements

SYNCBOX is a universal synchronization unit for controlled triggering dynamical, periodical or vibrating process with optical vibrographic system. The unit enables to synchronize up to four independent outputs with connected devices. Synchronized device is triggered by generated voltage pulse. SYNCBOX allows to generate signal with adjustable amplitude and frequency for optional frequency sweep. This feature is especially suitable for control an amplifier or a similar block for driving dynamical test machine, shaker etc. Information about parameters of captured and/or generated signals are sent via USB, Bluetooth using the API.

Typical configurations

1. Trigger box for multi-camera settings synchronization

  • Basic connection – synchronizing on rising edge input TTL pulse
  • Optical system / cameras can be connected together in MASTER / SLAVE mode, triggers can control lights for flashes (e.g. in stereo mode – left / right flash)

2. Synchronization functionalities - Dynamic event triggering

  • Generates trigger pulses on rising edge TTL input signal
  • Adjustable delay and pulse width
  • Trigger on every n-th input TLL pulse
  • Triggering on threshold voltage of input analog signal, same delay for all outputs
  • Adjustable sampling frequency (up to 5 kHz) and number of samples (max. 3000 samples)
  • Captured voltage level for each sampled value
  • Specified number of samples or infinite loop mode

3. Periodic event triggering

  • Triggering on voltage level, minimum, maximum, skip n pulses
  • Frequency detection – mHz resolution
  • Defined maximal number of pulses per second for outputs (FPS)
  • Adjustable phase delay from detected threshold
  • Typical use for fatigue tests

4. Videostroboscope-Vibrograph functionality

  • One trigger per period, triggers are shifted with ϕ (e.g. 5 periods for ϕ = 90°)
  • Minimal ϕ = 0,1° 3600 samples per period
  • Capturing fast periodic signals with sufficient number of periods
  • Easy setup to oversampling

5. Generator functionalities with triggering and accelerometer feedback functionalities

  • Integrated sine wave generator
  • Adjustable signal amplitude and frequency
  • Constant frequency or liner sweep
  • AMPLITUDE / FREQUENCY profile
  • Up to 10 profile points {amplitude, frequency}
  • Linear profile intervals
  • Feedback from sensor – profile could be set in physical measured units (g / frequency profile for accelerometer)
