Encapsulated & Waterproof Strain Gauges
The waterproof strain gauges are specifically designed for moist/humid environments and are durable for long or short term monitoring applications for highway, rail, marine and structures. Temperature range: -40°C to +82°C. Our weldable waterproof strain gauges are foil strain gauges bonded onto stainless steel shims, pre-wired and protected with a moulded waterproofing material. The stainless steel shim permits easy field installation with any conventional capacitive discharge spot welder (50 watt-second typical). All quality checks are done in a controlled environment with 100% water immersion testing. Pressure checks can be made to 500 psi on certain models.
