KY Strain Gauge Chains for Determining Strain Gradients

KY strain gauges (SGs) consist of 10 or 15 very small measuring grids that are placed on a common carrier at a constant spacing (equidistant apart) plus one compensation SG. SG chains are especially suitable for determining strain gradients.

With types KY1, KY2, KY3, KY4, KY5, KY6, KY7, KY8 and KY9 we offer you strain gauges (SG) 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.

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


Measuring grid consists of constantan, measuring grid carrier is polymide
