Semiconductor Strain Gages

Product Announcement from Micron Instruments & Micron Meters


Standard Semiconductor Strain Gages are made from "P" doped bulk silicon. They have no P/N junction. The Silicon is etched to shape, eliminating the potential for molecular dislocation or cracks, thereby optimizing performance.

Standard gages are available in three shapes: "Bar", "U", and "M"

Backed Semiconductor Strain Gages are mounted on a flexible insulated circuit with versatile solder pads makes them easy to install. They can be bent without hurting the gage and will perform like a foil gage except that the sensitivity change is 50 to 75 times greater.

Backed gages are available in two styles: Backed "Bar", and Backed "U".
