Product Features


Designed for aluminum structures, this strain gauge comes in the half-bridge shear configuration.
 
Product Description

A strain gauge is a small sensor whose resistance changes depending on the strain experienced by the structure it is attached to. They are similar to Load Cells, but are useful for applications where the structure has already been built. For example, you could use a strain gauge and a 1046 – PhidgetBridge 4-Input to measure the strain on various segments of the chassis of a robot or vehicle.

For more information on the different types of strain gauges and how to properly install them, have a look at our Strain Gauge Primer.


FUNCTIONAL

This strain gauge is designed to be used with aluminum structures. It can be used with other materials, but using aluminum alloys will result in the lowest sensitivity to changes in temperature. The double shear pattern makes it easy to mount for torsional strain measurement.

This is a half-bridge strain gauge. You can either use two to form a full-bridge circuit, or use resistors with a half-bridge. For more information on bridge circuits, see the Strain Gauge Primer.

Comes Packaged with:

  • Strip of six solder pads
