Strain Bridge


Description & Specification:

Strain Bridge.

Strain Bridge The high-contrast digital display gives a direct reading in micro-strains, for half or full bridge operation of the six channels. Measurements with a quarter bridge configuration can be made by adding a resistor. The gauge factor can be adjusted between 1 and 5. Each channel can be balanced separately by means of multiturn potentiometers. An analogue output for each channel permits the display of the signals using an oscilloscope or a plotter, and also data acquisition. With the bridge energisation of 2.5 V, strain gauges of 120 W minimum can be used. These can be in Constantan, Isoelastic Karma or Platinum – Tungsten alloys. The 20 000 point digital display allows measurements in the range ± 20 000 mm/m, whatever the gauge alloy. Technical specifications Number of channels: 6. Operating range: ± 20 000 µm/m. Resolution: ± 1 µm/m. Bridge energisation: 2.5 V – Stability: 10-4. Gauge configuration: Full or half bridge with gauges of 120 to 5000 WQuarter bridge with additional resistor.
