Pre-wired Strain Gauges: Fast, Safe and Convenient to Use

Leave the soldering to HBM and avoid a potential source of error by ordering pre-wired strain gauges. HBM has set up a “fast lane” service for small orders, which helps provide you the strain gauge you need with the cable of required length within only 4 days.

HBM strain gauges comply with current RoHS requirements, and new materials have been used in making the stranded connection wires more flexible and easier to use. The temperature range has also been expanded to 150°C.

Advantages

  • Fast installation
  • Increased reliability
  • Fluoropolymer-insulated stranded wire (with non-stick properties)
  • Temperature compensation for most materials
  • Cable length from 0.5 m to 10 m (RJ11 connectors upon request)
  • Grid length from 0.6 mm to 10 mm  
  • Gauges with 3- and 4-wire configurations
     

Configure your pre-wired gauge

Pre-wired strain gauges are available for the following materials:

  Materialx (ordering number)    
Ferritic steel (11.8 ppm/K)1
Aluminum (23 ppm/K) 3
Austenitic steel (16 ppm/K)5
Silica/composite (0.5 ppm/K)6
Titanium (9 ppm/K)7
Plastic (65 ppm/K)8
Molybdenum (5.4 ppm/K)9


#These strain gauges are only available with temperature response matching to ferritic steel, austenitic steel and aluminum.
