• DSC - DCell

    Digital Strain Gage Modules (DCell) are compact, high performance strain gage digital signal conditioner modules. They are aimed at applications which require high measurement accuracy, resolution, and stability. The internal signal conditioner reduces interference in noisy environments and allows for longer cable runs. The module and sensor may be powered by a typical DC power supply and communicates using standard or custom bus communications and protocols. Outputs include RS-485 and CAN. Available protocols include ASCII, CAN, and Modbus.

    The modules may be mounted inside of the Strainsert sensor body in either a single bridge, dual bridge, or biaxial configuration.

    Software tools are included for quick and convenient interfacing with device configuration, calibration, datalogging, and recording. A standard Windows DLL is provided for creating custom applications.

    Contact Strainsert Engineering for assistance with custom solutions, systems integration, or software development.

  • 4-20 mA

    The Strainsert 2-wire Loop Powered 4 to 20 mA Strain Gage Modules are specially designed compact, high performance strain gage analog signal conditioner modules. They are aimed at 350 Ohm sensor applications which require high measurement accuracy, resolution, and stability. The internal signal conditioner reduces interference in noisy environments and allows for longer cable runs. The module and sensor may be powered by a typical DC power supply. Outputs may be configured for either UniPolar or Bi-Polar operation.

    The modules may be mounted inside of the Strainsert sensor body in either a single bridge, dual bridge, or biaxial configuration.

    When both the magnitude and the direction of the load are unknown, the vector measurement is possible using a Strainsert force sensing pin instrumented with two strain-gage bridges oriented 90° apart around the circumference. The cross-section of the pin shows the two sets of strain gages, the Y bridge will sense force component Py, while the X bridge will sense forces in the Px direction, 90° to Py. The outputs from the two bridges, Ex and Ey, can be measured and the resultant force magnitude and direction can be determined (see Biaxial Schematic Image.)

    *Certain custom pin geometry and bridge to bridge effects (cross-talk) may result in a measurement accuracy of 5% or greater. For such cases, Strainsert can provide a correction algorithm to minimize errors.

    Dual bridge gaging provides two independent strain gage circuits. This option is advantageous for controlling multiple feedback systems as well as providing redundant force-measuring capability.

  • Deep Sea Clevis Pin_page25_new

    The Strainsert deep sea/high pressure Clevis Pin provides the ability to measure force at clevis joints under high-pressure conditions. Complete systems are available, and include the Instrumented Clevis Pin, cabling, and a digital display indicator.
