Product Announcement from Jewell Instruments, LLC

Dynamic Asphalt Strain Gage-Image

Jewell Instruments offers a Dynamic Asphalt Strain Gage (ASG), an embeddable strain gage designed for use in high frequency (dynamic) environments. These rugged gages are built to withstand high temperatures and vibratory roller compaction, making them ideal for infrastructure and construction type projects. Our ASGs utilize a Wheatstone bridge circuit, which compensates for temperature and lead resistance, and filter unwanted noise for precision strain measurements. Units are offered in either bending strain or axial strain configurations (please specify per order). Our Dynamic ASGs are a perfect choice for measuring strains in asphalt pavement and for comprehensive infrastructure monitoring.
