VW Surface Mount Strain Gage

Overview

The Model 4000 Strain Gage is designed primarily for arc welding to steel structures such as tunnel linings, excavation bracing, piles and bridges. The gage has a 150 mm gage length (longer or shorter versions are also available), a 3000 µε range and a 1 µε sensitivity. The gage can be adapted for bonding to concrete or for bolting to steel surfaces by modification of the end blocks.
