Ensure Successful Installation of Strain Gages and Special Sensors

To ensure expert installation and performance of our state-of-the-art strain gages and special sensors, Micro-Measurements offers a comprehensive selection of stress analysis accessories.

 

Our surface cleaning products create ideal conditions for the proper bonding of strain gages and temperature sensors. High quality solder joints made using our strain-gage-qualified solders optimize strain gage performance. Our wires and cables provide peace of mind when it comes to strain gage accuracy. In short, our strain gage and special sensor accessories are essential to the top-notch performance expected by Stress Analysts.

 

See, at Micro-Measurements, we know that Stress Analysts must think strategically, like master chess players. As in a game of chess, in which the player must think many steps ahead before making a move, the Stress Analyst, too, must think well ahead before selecting accessories to accompany their strain gage or sensor. A successful Stress Analyst knows that selecting just right the accessory for the strain gage or sensor — whether its surface cleaning products, bonding adhesives, solders, or wires — can make the difference between an outstanding design and a catastrophic failure.

Our surface cleaning products ensure proper bonding of strain gages and temperature sensors, creating a work surface that's chemically clean and totally free of contaminants.
To achieve its highest performance capacity, the bonding of a strain gage to its test member must be perfect. For ideal bonding, select a high-quality adhesive matched to the quality of your strain gage.
Each of our installation tools has been thoroughly tested and evaluated by our laboratory staff for quality, reliability, ease of use, and compatibility with all other Micro-Measurements products.
Our bondable terminals, specially designed for use in strain gage circuits, ensure the efficient and confident attachment of lead wires.
Quality of the solder joints formed when attaching lead wires to strain gages used in installation is critical for successful high-performance strain gage results. Our solders are expertly crafted to match the quality and performance of our strain gages.
For accurate, reliable strain measurements, it's important to use the right type of lead wire for each installation. Our high quality wires and cables will save you headaches down the line.
Environmental effects easily degrade strain gage performance. Micro-Measurements coating compounds have been formulated for use in protecting strain gages from these environmental conditions.
These kits, which include wires, bonding adhesives, and solders, are a make it convenient and easy solution for strain gage users to purchase all of the needed accessory supplies and materials in a single package.
For shunt calibration and bridge completion of strain-measuring instrumentation, use our precision, high-stability resistors to ensure accuracy and stability of the fixed resistors.
When built-in bridge completion resistors and "dummy" gages that accept quarter- and half-bridge strain gage input circuits are not included with strain gage instrumentation, the MR-Series Bridge Completion Modules are an excellent choice.
