HBM has developed optical strain gauges with a plastic encapsulation that simplifies handling and makes the sensors resistant to mechanical damage.

The optical K-OP strain gauges are mainly intended for experimental stress analysis work that demands precise measurements, and that cannot be resolved with standard strain gauges.

The K-OP strain gauges reach 10 million stress cycles in continuous vibration behaviour with alternating strain of +/-3.000um/m.

The gauges are also suitable for measurements in hazardous areas and in high-current and voltage engineering components.

Several optical strain gauges can be arranged within a glass fibre to reduce installation costs.

The gauges are provided with a data sheet containing all data necessary, such as the gauge factor, for successful strain measurements.

Recording of measurement data, and its subsequent evaluation, can be simplified with a range of additional components from HBM.

These range from optical strain gauges, with the appropriate accessories via interrogators, to HBM’s data acquisition software Catman AP, which includes an Easyoptics module for optical strain gauges.

HBM UK Ltd

Our extensive range covers everything from strain gages via measuring transducers to analog and digital amplifiers. Since our amplifiers can be connected to a PC, measured values can be further processed and then meaningfully displayed with the aid of operator-friendly analysis software specifically designed for measurement technology.
