(Above) L3 systems can interface directly with Starrett measurement tools.

Software options include the Automation Builder. The L3 Automation Builder features the ability to utilize conditional branching and digital I/O.

(Above) The MMS and MMD test frames make use of our L3 software. These test frames can interface with up to two extensometers. MMS and MMD test frames also feature analog and digital I/O. FMS and FMD test frames support only digital I/O and cannot be used with extensometers.

For example, you can precisely measure your sample's

dimensions for stress and strain using a Starrett micrometer or caliper. The measured value is automatically entered into the "active" Sample Definition step.
