To achieve its highest performance capacity, the bonding of a strain gage to its test member must be perfect. For ideal bonding, select a high-quality adhesive matched to the quality of your strain gage.
Each of our installation tools has been thoroughly tested and evaluated by our laboratory staff for quality, reliability, ease of use, and compatibility with all other Micro-Measurements products.
Solders and Accessories
Quality of the solder joints formed when attaching lead wires to strain gages used in installation is critical for successful high-performance strain gage results. Our solders are expertly crafted to match the quality and performance of our strain gages.
Wires and Cables
For accurate, reliable strain measurements, it's important to use the right type of lead wire for each installation. Our high quality wires and cables will save you headaches down the line.
Environmental effects easily degrade strain gage performance. Micro-Measurements coating compounds have been formulated for use in protecting strain gages from these environmental conditions.
These kits, which include wires, bonding adhesives, and solders, are a make it convenient and easy solution for strain gage users to purchase all of the needed accessory supplies and materials in a single package.
For shunt calibration and bridge completion of strain-measuring instrumentation, use our precision, high-stability resistors to ensure accuracy and stability of the fixed resistors.
Bridge Completion Modules (BCM)
When built-in bridge completion resistors and "dummy" gages that accept quarter- and half-bridge strain gage input circuits are not included with strain gage instrumentation, the MR-Series Bridge Completion Modules are an excellent choice.
