PCA Stress Analysis Software

  • Analyzes KS2 files recorded by our measuring instruments.
  • Easy operation
  • Outputs the analyzed results in CSV files.


PCAS-200A, PCA Stress Analysis Software

The PCAS-200A is the dedicated software for the KS2 files, recorded by our measuring instruments. The PCAS-200A calculates the max. principal strain, min. principal strain, diagonal strain, strain rate and creates graphs and tables easily.

Others, compare with PCAS-100A, the PCAS-200A has more report types and file processing functions.

* Evaluation method for printed circuit assembly using strain gages is regulated by IPC/JDEC-9704A and it is valid for quality evaluation or failure analysis.
