Innovative strain gage wiring configuration suits extreme temperatures.

HBM has launched the LC61-3/350 strain gage with an innovative wiring configuration that allows significant time savings for applications in extreme temperature ranges. The LC61-3/350 has robust solder tabs with strain relief that allows connecting cables to be connected directly to the strain gage.

Any resistance variations at the strain gage connection points are compensated by the four-wire configuration. The temperature response of the strain gages is matched to either ferritic steel or aluminum in a temperature range of -200°C to +250°C.

The strain gage is available in standard measuring grid lengths of 3mm and 6mm, with a resistance of 350 ohms. Different configurations of measuring grid length, resistance, and type are available on request.

The LC61-3/350, significantly reduces the installation time in extreme temperature ranges (-269°C ... +250°C). This is because they replace the metal foil strain gages based on chrome-nickel alloy that are often used for these applications and which take longer to connect.
