Product :: Strain Gauges [ Send Enquiry ]

A strain gauge is a sensor that is used to measure the tension or compression within a part. While there are several methods of measuring strain, the most common is with a strain gauge, a device whose electrical resistance varies in proportion to the amount of strain on the device.

Hytech Micro Measurements Pvt. Ltd. are the only commercial manufacturer of Foil Type Gauges for various applications in India. We provide the highest quality gauges and accessories for both stress analysis and transducer applications.

Strain gauges are inexpensive and robust, making them attractive for any measurement needs. Strain gauges are not only used simply to measure strain, but they are also used in a variety of other applications.

Strain Gauges for Stress and Strain Measurement:
The basic function of a strain gauge is to measure strain, and in turn stress. Strain is simply the change in length of a component divided by the original length of the component while experiencing an applied load. Stress is calculated by multiplying the strain by the modulus of elasticity for the specific material being measured.
Strain Gauges for Load Measurement:
Strain gauges are integral elements of load cell transducers, which measure the magnitude of an applied tensile or compressive force. The strain gauges are installed on precisely machined spring elements where the exact cross section is known, and therefore the strain measurement can be converted to a load measurement output.
Strain Gauges for Pressure Measurement:
A pressure sensor uses a full bridge strain gauge configuration. The sensor measures the applied pressure over a discrete area.
Strain Gauges for Torsion Measurement:
Strain gauges are used to measure the torsion forces in a rotating shaft to ensure that the shaft is not being overloaded. Shaft overload can lead to fatigue over time or fracture, resulting in a system failure.
Shear Strain Measurement:
Two single axis strain gauges or a two element 900 Rosette can be mounted at 900 to convert shear strain to shear stress.
