LY Linear Strain Gauges with 1 Measuring Grid

Series LY is the first choice for strain measurements in only one direction. With types LY1, LY2, LY4, LY5, LY6, LY7 , LY8 and LY9 we offer you linear strain gauges (SGs) in various geometries and sizes, each available with temperature responses adapted  to the following materials:

  • Ferritic steel (10.8 ppm/K; 6.0 ppm/°F); temperature matching codes: 1
  • Aluminum (23 ppm/K; 12.8 ppm/°F); temperature matching codes: 3
  • Austenitic steel (16 ppm/K, 8.9 ppm/°F); temperature matching codes: 5
  • Silica/composite (0,5 ppm/K; 0.3 ppm/°F); temperature matching codes: 6
  • Titanium and gray cast iron (9 ppm/K; 5.0 ppm/°F); temperature matching codes: 7
  • Plastic (65 ppm/K; 36.1 ppm/°F); temperature matching codes: 8
  • Molybdenum (5.4 ppm/K; 3.0 ppm/°F); temperature matching codes: 9

Insert the temperature matching code in place of the placeholder “x” to get the ordering number of the strain gage you need. Strain gauges with # characterized are only available in matches for aluminum, ferritic and austenitic steel

Save time and efforts:  LY4 strain gauges are available as pre-wired versions with connection cable

Strain gauges available in 120, 350, 700 and 1,000 Ohms

Measuring grid consists of constantan, measuring grid carrier is polymide

Fast delivery for preferred strain gauge types -  available from stock!
