Picture: Tensile force measurement using C series strain gauges at low temperatures (permafrost)

Series C strain gauges (SGs) with 1 or 2 measuring grids are specially designed for use at extreme temperatures (-269 °C to +250 °C) and provide an adapted temperature response in the range from -200 °C to +250 °C. Series C strain gauges also feature flexible use and are therefore easy to work with.

Types LC1 and LC6 are linear strain gauges for strain measurements in one direction.

Type XC1 is a 0°/90° rosette for analyzing biaxial stress states with known principal strain direction.

Type RC1 is a 0°/45°/90° rosette for analyzing a biaxial stress state with unknown principal strain direction.

Series C strain gauges are available in nominal (rated) resistances of 120 and 350 ohms with different temperature responses adapted for steel or to customer specification.

The measuring grid consists of a special CrNi alloy; the material of the measuring grid carrier is polyimide.
