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

Leave the soldering to HBK and avoid a potential source of error by ordering pre-wired strain gauges. Find an overview of available RoHS compliant strain gauges with the different cable configurations below. Frequently ordered configurations ("high runners") are available as finished products in small quantities (for packs containing up to 10 strain gauges) from stock. Less frequently ordered configurations (“mid runners”) are available as assemblies and are finished and shipped to order in small quantities (packs containing up to 5 strain gauges) within 10 days. Configurations that are not requested as regularly ("low runners") have a delivery time of 12 weeks.

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 for the CANHEAD amplifier system
  • RJ45 connectors for the FUSION amplifier system (1 m, 5 m and 10 m cable length)
  • Grid length from 0.6 mm to 10 mm  
  • Strain gauges with 3- and 4-wire configurations
  • Stickers for simplified parameterization and documentation

Check availability and prices at the HBMshop

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

 


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.

High runners:

Frequently requested strain gauge configurations that are suitable for most common measurement tasks are referred to as high runners. They are available from stock within two days for packs containing up to 10 strain gauges. Larger quantities can be available quickly, provided there is sufficient stock.

All strain gauges with a cable and a 50mm fluoropolymer insulated stranded wire are designed in four-wire technology as standard. If required, these products can also be ordered as variants with 3-wire technology. All versions come with open cable ends and without a connector/plug.
