A strain gauge is a device used to determine the amount of strain, or change in dimensions, when stress is applied. Strain gauges measure mechanical quantities by converting tension, force, and pressure into an electrical signal.The strain gauge, also known as the strain gage, is best known as the sensory aspect of a loadcell. Load cells measure the compression, tension and/or shear force of various materials, including solid objects, liquid and gas.
The strain gauges are the essential part of the load cell since they are what detect the inconsistencies in a substance and turn that into an electrical signal that is translated through a computer as a readable measurement. When part of a load cell, there are multiple strain gauges being used, connected by circuits that pass along the electric signal. Having multiple strain gauges make up the load cell is important because the more present for a single reading, the more precise the reading will be. Read More…
Our load cells are manufactured with the highest attention to detail at all stages. Whether it is through the design stage, engineering stage, or through hundreds of tests run daily, we ensure that our products outshine all competitor products.$$$
We supply Multi-Axis Force/Torque Sensors. Our F/T Sensors measure all six components of force and torque. ATI F/T transducers use silicon strain gauges for low-noise and high overload protection.$$$
