The NOVA rheometer features a unique "net-zero" bias bearing system. This null balance system allows for nano-torque and nano-strain measurement control and analysis. Also featured is an innovative, low-inertia drag cup motor utilizing novel "feed forward" strain and speed control. The torque range is from 3 nNm to 200 mNm. It is possible to extend this to 1 nNm on the low end and 230 mNm at the high end for certain test parameters. Additional standard features include auto-detect measuring systems, video and image software, and high-performance open-source instrument-control software. Visit www.atsrheosystems.com.
