Strain Gauges for High Strains or Compression Greater Than 5%
Use of a strain gauge (SG) LD20 is recommended wherever high strain or compression occurs (>5 %). The SG has a maximum elongation of +/- 100,000 µm/m (+/-10 %). In terms of fatigue life, the LD20 exhibits lower resistance to alternating loads than standard Y series strain gauges.
