The EduDIC is a Digital Image Correlation (DIC) measurement system designed as an entry-level, low-cost, academic training tool to assist tuition of experimental solid mechanics and materials testing. This easy-to-use system gives academic instructors & students the ability to perform optical DIC measurements for research, workshop & laboratory exercises.

It utilizes the full potential of Istra4D with no limitation in modular functionality, allowing unrestricted measurement data to be acquired quick & easy and correlated with high accuracy & precision.

EduDIC product demonstration.

The EduDIC is a complete & fully equipped measurement system supplied with one Laptop PC and minimal hardware components, thus making setup quick and easy.

The system operates in master/slave triggering mode, which is a special configuration that does not require connection to an external DAQ controller.
Cameras only need to be connected to one another (for triggering) and to the Laptop PC (for data & power) – and that’s all! Measurement performance of the EduDIC system is harnessed using the technology of USB3 Vision.
Up to two, 2.3 Mpx (1920 x 1200 px), CMOS cameras can be used which are capable of operating at a maximum frame rate of 166 Hz, at full-resolution, with unrestricted recording capacity.

The EduDIC is a flexible & adjustable measurement system whereby the cameras may be aligned & moved freely on the mounting bar. As such, users can utilize different stereo-angles and/or baseline distance for better in-plane or out-of-plane, accuracy.
The system incorporates a standard 25 mm fixed focal length lens with standard Field-of-View (FoV) of up to a 200 mm (H) x 125 mm (V) at a Distance-to-Object (DtO) of 470 mm.

Speckle Pattern Application

Speckle Pattern Application

DIC uses a contrasting, speckle pattern as the information source for the correlation algorithm. The performance of the correlation is, among other things, dependent on the quality of the speckle pattern.
