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 10 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. TPE insulated cables allow the use in a temperature range between -40°C and 120°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

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


Simplified Documentation and Parameterization

To optimize the measuring point documentation each strain gauge includes two stickers which can be placed next to the measuring point and near the measuring amplifier. Benefit from the parameter information directly in the measurement setup:

  • QR code that directly links to the data sheet of the respective strain gauge
  • The product and production batch numbers
  • The k-factor and a additional space for your notes
  • QR code containing the values of the individual strain gauge to simplify computer-aided parameterization or documentation with a scanner

Please note: newly produced strain gauges all come with the sticker in stock, strain gauges still in stock do not have this feature yet.
