Spot Weldable Strain Gauge

The vibrating wire strain gauge can be spot welded or epoxy bonded on steel structures and struts. It can also be epoxy bonded on concrete structures. A sensor coil housing mounted directly over the strain gauge, completely encloses the sensor, forming a watertight enclosure. A pair of clamps are provided to aid in fixing the housing to the substrate using an epoxy adhesive.
