Choosing a Strain Sensor and Measurement Device
Strain gages are fundamental sensing devices that function as the building blocks of many other types of transducers, including pressure, load, and torque, used extensively in structural test and monitoring applications. Even though strain gages are common, they are one of the most difficult types of sensors from which to condition and acquire reliable data. National Instruments offers a wide variety of devices for you to choose from to perform strain gage and bridge-based sensor measurements.
