HBM’s new range of M Series strain gauges has been developed to meet the demanding requirements of measuring strain in fiber composites. New high-strength materials pose a major challenge for strain gauges used in measurement purposes, particularly when pushing components to their mechanical limit of performance. An example of this would be when a strain gauge, subjected to alternating loads at increased load levels, is weakened and fails earlier than the component under the test.
The M Series has been specifically developed for high resistance to alternating loads, at increased strain levels and high temperatures – up to 300°C – and is available with various geometries, measuring grid lengths, and temperature response matching.
