1. Overview
    The ABR series uses a common optical path interferometer based on optical heterodyne interferometry and the Fourier analysis method to achieve high resolution and high accuracy, and is not affected by external disturbances such as vibration and air fluctuation. The ABR-10A can be equipped with an optional loading device to measure photoelastic constants.
    **The ABR-10A and ABR-22 has been discontinued. The ABR-100 is the successor to the ABR-10A.
