Precision Transducers/Measurements

Determining the weight or the mass of an object is a vital step in any manufacturing process. Precise measurement of the weight of gases, liquids and granules is required at each step of the process.

Precision Transducers / Measurements


The most widely-used application for strain gauges is in precision transducers. From supermarket self-checkouts (“unexpected item in the bagging area”) through engine power measurement, pressure transducers, displacement, to weighing aircraft, high precision is a prerequisite. Strain gauges have unique characteristics for these applications to ensure maximum linearity, minimum hysteresis and creep, minimal temperature sensitivity, and long-term stability. The combination of best-in-class strain gauges including “Advanced Sensors,” industry-leading adhesives, and a wide range of supporting accessories are uniquely supported by our technical engineers who are recognized experts. “Our expertise, your solution.”
