Mechanical Testing SystemLoad CellMeasures load in lbs or NLinear Actuator Measures displacement in inches or mmPerform calibration, initialize software set-ups, and insert the appropriate jigs.After the test, load vs. time and displacement vs. time are recorded.What is next? Depends on what questions are asked. PC with the hardware specific software
