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 and LY8 we offer you linear strain gauges (SGs) in various geometries and sizes, each available with temperature responses adapted for steel, aluminum or to customer specification. Strain gauges are available with nominal (rated) resistances of 120, 350, 700 and 1000 ohms.

The measuring grid consists of constantan; the material of the measuring grid carrier is polyimide. While we offer a wide selection of products, they all have one thing in common: the excellent properties of HBM Y series strain gauges:

  • Universal strain gauge with excellent properties
  • Various connection configurations available, including version with practical connection cable
  • Flexible and easy to work with.

LY4 strain gauges also come with a connection cable!
