Micro-Measurements Partners With Measuresoft to Meet Demand for Precision Strain Gauge Sensors in Ireland
Micro-Measurements®, a Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG) brand, today announced a new distribution partnership with Ireland-based Measuresoft. Through this partnership, Measuresofts’ customers in Ireland will be able to purchase Micro-Measurements’ broad array of precision strain gauge sensors, accessories, and instrumentation.
Located in Dundalk, Ireland, Measuresoft is a leading distributor of instrumentation for the process automation and test and measurement industries since 1989. Under the agreement, Measuresoft’s customers will have ready access to the Micro-Measurements portfolio of solutions including its Advanced Sensors Technology strain gauges in a variety of configurations, sizes, resistance values and package types, as well as its data acquisition systems, StrainSmart® software and portable strain indicators, calibrators and recorders.
Precision strain gauges are used in a broad array of applications and industries including medical, test and measurement, force measurement, Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), autonomous vehicles, instrumentation & control, machinery & equipment, motion control, Industry 4.0, robotics, smart cities, smart manufacturing, smart infrastructure, agriculture, wearable electronics, wireless applications and oil & gas and other energy applications.
"Not all requirements for precision strain gauges are the same," said Richard Aylward, Micro-Measurements Sales Manager. "Some require a higher level of expertise and support, and Measuresoft has a long history of providing just that. They are an ideal partner for projects that demand stability measured in micro-strain, with a proven reputation for addressing a wide array of applications — from concept to delivery and support. We are very excited to realize the potential of our partnership to meet our customers' needs for high-reliability strain gauges for both stress analysis and OEM force measurements solutions.”
Fergal Cassidy, CEO at Measuresoft, said: “We are very pleased to add Micro-Measurements’ portfolio of strain gauges and instrumentation to our line card. Not only does our customer base include a number of manufacturers that could greatly benefit from the precision and reliability delivered by these devices, but we are seeing demand increasing across the U.K market as a whole. With Micro-Measurements we are in an optimal position to address this need.”
The Micro-Measurements Advanced Sensors Technology product portfolio includes linear, shear and circular gauges, arranged as individual, half-bridge and full-bridge configurations, in ranges from 350 Ω to 20 kΩ, with added flexibility in mounting options. The technology improves grid-to-grid tolerances and matching over traditional strain gauge manufacturing techniques, enabling better sensor performance.
Micro-Measurements, a Vishay Precision Group, Inc. (VPG) brand, is dedicated to the development, manufacture, and marketing of resistive-foil sensors for high-precision strain measurement. Micro-Measurements offers a full complement of strain gages, PhotoStress® equipment and coatings, data acquisition systems, and supplies necessary to obtain accurate, reliable stress data.
