HBM extends Y series of strain gages .

HBM has extended its existing range of Y series of
strain gages with four new geometries. The Y series
strain gages are made from flexible polyimide carrier
material with constantan measuring grids and are
designed to robust and easy-to-handle for experimental
stress analysis applications.

The LY7x linear strain gage has been developed especially for use
in material testing applications. The integrated, laterally arranged
connection points substantially facilitate installation and wiring
compared with previous strain gages. In material testing machines
that often offer only little space, the laterally arranged wiring can be
quickly connected to save time. 

The XY7x T-rosette is frequently connected in a half or full bridge
and integrated into the Wheatstone bridge circuit. It is delivered
with both measuring grids already electrically connected at one
point saving the user connection work and installation time.

The Y series also includes two new strain gage chains with integrated
solder terminals for determining a strain gradient. 

The KY8x strain gage chain features ten measuring grids and one
compensating strain gage in parallel to the chain axis while the
KY9x strain gage chain has ten measuring grids and one
compensating strain gage vertical to the chain axis. 

The Y series of strain gage chains shorten the installation time
substantially compared with equivalent strain gage chains with
leads that require the fitting of additional solder terminals.
