Strain gauges

ISO 6784 | ASTM C469 | BS 1881:121 | DIN 1048 | UNI 6556
General description
General description
They provide a very accurate electrical signal, strictly proportional to the strain of the specimen submitted to load application, for determining the Elastic Modulus and strength characteristics as alternative to the Compressometer-Extensometers 55-C0222/F. They can be applied to the specimen surface by a special Adhesive-Catalyst agent and other accessories all included in the 82-P0399/B Strain gauge application kit.
Up to 4 strain gauges ¼ bridge, and up to 8 ½ bridge, can be directly connected by one or two interfaces 82-P0398  to MCC8 and ADVANTEST 9 Control consoles  which are suitable for cyclic loading and automatic determination of the Modulus of Elasticity.
Strain gauges can also be connected, by one or two interfaces 82-P0398, to a suitable data logger as, for example, the Datalog 82-P0908/B when the load application on the specimen is performed with Automatic compression testers as, for example the AUTOMAX 5 and PILOT 4 models. In this case, one of the channels of the Datalog 82-P0908/B should be used for the load signal coming from an additional pressure transducer with selecting valve fitted to the compression tester.
