  • Introduction to Strain Gages
    Strain Gages (gauges): What is a Strain gage? A Strain gage (sometimes refered to as a Strain Gauge) is a sensor whose resistance varies with applied force; It converts force, pressure, tension, weight, etc., into a change in electrical resistance which can then be measured. A Strain gage
  • Accelerometers
    the accelerometer's frequency response and prevents damage from frequencies near the beam's resonant frequency. Suspended-mass devices use two different methods to determine acceleration. The first method is to measure the force (strain) induced in the beam by the mass. Here, strain gages on the beam generate
  • Accelerometer / Vibration Sensor
    principles. The most common types of accelerometers are piezoelectric, capacitance, null-balance, strain gage, resonance, piezoresistive, and magnetic induction. Vibration sensors are sensors for measuring, displaying and analyzing linear velocity, displacement and proximity, or acceleration. They can
  • Introduction to Pressure Transducers
    of pressure transducers, one of the most common is the strain-gage base transducer. The conversion of pressure into an electrical signal is achieved by the physical deformation of strain gages which are bonded into the diaphragm of the pressure transducer and wired into a wheatstone bridge configuration
  • Why is MEMS the Preferred Technology for High Shock Measurement?
    In 1947 the first piezoelectric accelerometer was designed in the United. States1. Within 2-decades, piezoelectric accelerometers with their. higher resonant frequencies, signal levels, and amplitude ranges had. totally displaced previously used metal strain gage technology in. accelerometers.
